Hi awesome people!
I'm new here, so please bear with me.
We are moving in a couple of weeks to a beautiful farm of 30 acres in Missouri (so very excited!)
I want to plant a variety of fruit trees (apples, pears, plum, apricots, you name it) and am having trouble finding information about how to start an orchard with multiple varieties of fruit trees. We plan to have pastured pigs and chickens and I'm not sure where to plant the trees. Do I put them on the hill by the house, or spread them around the pastures so that the animals can get the windfall? Also, how do I work nut trees into the mix? Can anyone recommend books or articles that I could read? Of course, any advice is much appreciated!
