Bill has never had a bad worm problem. AT 70 years old and a seven day a week job from July thru December, plus trimming in the winter and spraying in the spring/summer....I know worms were not a problem. It is called retirement and no one else around wants to work that hard to make a living.

The bottom line is that for as long as anyone can remember...Donaghy's Orchard has provided quality fresh fruits, vegetables, cider, preserves and such with 'down home" friendly service and prices anyone would be jealous of.

Family owned business disappear every year.
Donaghy's Orchard will be missed.

On that note, look for great apples this fall at the Apple Barn in Woodburn. Pastor Paul Doehrmann is a wonderful evangelist and his family deserves everyone's patronage.
