Dennis Hartley, who with Anna Steinkraus, owns Littletree Orchard in Newfield, will fill us in on the business of apple growing and apple selling. The harvest began in late August and will continue into October. Littletree is one of the vendors at the downtown Apple Harvest Festival on the weekend of September 30 through October 2. They grow a wide variety of apples including some older types that few other people grow around here.
Joe Wilson of DRAC (Dryden Resource Awareness Coalition) will describe the recent suit brought against the Town of Dryden by Anshutz Exploration Company, a Denver-based natural gas driller. The Town of Dryden recently passed an addition to their zoning ordinance that forbade heavy industrial activity, including hydraulic fracturing for natural gas, in the town.
