This week Lake City resident Bill Farhat shared with MC2 his love of the Fig. A tour of his hillside fig orchard was an impressive experience. Its had some much deserved press in recent years, highlighting how he makes it all happen.
A unique and interesting aspect to his effort is how Mr Farhat keeps it all within reach. Pictures provided here show how both access and protection from critters are a key to how it all works.
A quick same day visit to the Meadowbrook Orchard gave ‘the Fig Guy’ an opportunity to meet another passionate neighbor in love with this yummy and easy to grow fruit. His experience and insights are a wonderful asset to our Lake City community. It was an enjoyable visit. Thanks Bill!
