March update: We have about finished raking and hauling the massive amounts of leaves at the wedding site, have cleaned the silt out of the waterfall pond, and removed the large irrigation pipe at the waterfall since the pipe was full of silt and hasn't been used for many years. We are still pruning the orchards and removing invasive elm and juniper trees that we continually battle. We got the new round pen built to exercise the horses, but haven't gotten started on the pipe corral project yet.
Prices for fuel wood and wood for barbecuing vary depending on the type of wood, if it is to be split, and if it is to be delivered (locally only). We sometimes have older wood or elm at reduced prices. Call for pricing information.
