    Long Island’s north shore is a great place to grow fruit – the soil and drainage are ideal. In the seventeen-forties apples were being exported to the West Indies from here. In fact, Long Island is home to America’s first commercial apple trade.

    Over the years things have changed. Fruit bearing trees like peaches and pears have been replaced by freeways and cul-de-sacs. But one orchard, just east of Northport, New York, still gives locals a taste of what things used to be like.

    As heard on WHCR 90.3 in Harlem, NY and WGXC 90.7 Greene and Columbia Counties, NY.

    Finalist for the SPJ Region 1 Mark of Excellence Award in the Radio Feature category.
