We farm in a very conservative part of California. Our farming neighbors are very set in their ways and we are regarded as strange. I have heard that there is a certain amount of respect that we have ‘lasted so long’. The good news is that many of the Walnut growers are starting to follow organic techniques by putting up owl boxes to control gophers. A couple of weeks ago I also heard from our good friend Bobby Borchard that the new fad is to put bat boxes in your orchard to control Codling Moth. Bobby has been doing this for over 20 years. It takes time but we are happy to see these changes.
