Yes, thanks for sharing, that is so cool. How do those 3 apple varieties taste? I have no idea what they are, maybe the second is a Cortland, and the last one looks like a Granny Smith, but that's just a guess. Is this the actual land you'll be starting your new apple orchard on? I saw Custer, MI on a map, it looks like a it'd be real snow magnet off the Lake, but the land looks very nice. It's neat to see those really old trees still producing fruit.
My wife's family has owned this land since the 1790s, I think. They have either the actual deed, or a copy of it in her sister's house who lives about a quarter mile from us. It's been split up between her, and her two siblings. But, I think we have the best part of it, we have the barn, old chicken coop, corn crib, tool shed, house and even an old outhouse! Also have the best of the land although it's a bit hilly, it has the best soil to grow stuff.
We also have some old Milam apple trees that produce very small fruit occasionally. My wife said there was kind of an orchard down by the old house, they had a few apple, plum and cherry trees there. But, there was a blight that got all of the trees about 15 years ago, except the cherries.
