Orchards like this are so beautiful and perfect for romantic weddings. However, the orchards are under constant siege. It is very hard to keep a bear from an apple. They are very adept at knowing which tree is ripe and have no inhibition about tearing down limbs. After much pondering and research, we got two livestock guardian dogs. It is amazing. These two dogs have single-handedly kept the bears from doing any further damage to the orchards. You can tell they have just heard something and are about to run off to investigate.
