While they may look pastoral and picturesque, Orchards are anything but.
Ever notice those signs along the orchards? They say things like “DO NOT ENTER” and “DANGER/PELIGRO”. That’s because of the disgusting pesticides that they spray to grow apples. Washington State isn’t such an environmentally friendly place, is it? At least not when you cross the Cascade mountains and get over to the Eastern or Central part of the state of Washington.
The apple growers are legally required to post these signs. IS THIS WHAT YOU CALL GROWING FOOD?
If you have to put up a sign because of toxicity issues, why would I want to eat what you are growing in that orchard?
