Teltane farm is, among many other things, an amazing repository of well tended heirloom apple trees.These venerable local varieties are cared for with a combination of old-timer knowhow and forward thinking innovation by an even more incredible storehouse of wisdom, Mark Fulford. His tireless devotion to common sense agriculture in opposition to industrial degradation, both at a small local and a large international level, is inspirational. He treats his trees to a generous diet of minerals and foliar sprays that lead to huge yields without sacrificing the delicate flavors and aromas of these rare and delicious apples.
