Update: February 17, 2019 Yesterday I learned that this property has new owners, as of July 1, 2018.
For current information, please visit M & T’s Gibbsville Orchard.
I am in my 10th year of blogging, and update posts as I become aware of changes. We are grateful for all our local businesses, through the years. Best wishes. Older posts are part of the history.
In an earlier post this season, I mentioned going to Dutters Gibbsville Orchard in Sheboygan Falls, Wisconsin; and that I wanted to go back and look more at the art for sale in the store. A few weekends ago, I stopped by and bought some of their apples and cards. I enjoyed a lovely conversation with one of the owners about pruning, and how Lake Michigan had a moderating effect this past Spring, and so protected their trees from frost.
I bought a few cards of the same design, “Artwork and Calligraphy by Lori Voskuil-Dutter for Creative Design Studio, Inc. Cedar Grove, WI 53013.” I chose one with a quote from Emily Dickinson: “Hope is the thing with feathers…” On the back of the card it says that the paper is handmade from mulberry, “…a renewable source that comes from harvested bark which regrows, preventing any harm to the tree.”
