“Bryan Hildebrand is one of Green Barn’s latest and largest projects. He has 44 acres near Cornwall, which he plans to gradually fill with trees (300 on every five acres). He’s focusing on Asian pears for now but will also plant plums, cherries, seedless grapes, peaches, nectarines, and several varieties of nuts. Once the trees start producing full yield in three to five years he expects to be earning gross revenue of $60,000 to $100,000 for each five-acre section. (Leroux and Taylor estimate $40,000 in all annual costs per farm including labour and equipment.) "It’s not an easy task," Hildebrand says. He advises having another source of income until the trees reach their full yield.”   Exotic Fruits - By Jessica Sims   Full article here.

“Many new orchardists where born this fall. I’d like to congratulate the Hildebrand’s for their project in Cornwall. Bryan Hildebrand even worked for us for a few weeks to learn the ropes before we installed his very own orchard together. In the picture below you can see Bryan and Adrian planting blueberries for Routes des Gerbes d’Angelica which installed a diversified small fruit ‘u pick’ in 2 acres of permanent plastic.”  Full article here.
