Fifer Orchards

On  September 23rd my agricultural class and I went to Fifer Orchard in the Camden area. On this field trip we took a tour around the orchard and saw the many diverse vegetables and fruits grown their. We were shown irrigation tricks and also talked about the importance of immigrant helpers. We then saw the way that fruits and vegetables were packaged  and stored. They also talked to us about the shipping of food and how natural disasters like Irma can make it difficult to get food from place to place. This trip was very inspirational because it is a family owned operation. They even have a little festival with music and a corn maze. It was nice seeing a family owned orchard for the first time.
