On an absolutely beautiful Saturday morning, the Rotary Club of Norfolk Sunrise was hosted to a tour of Suncrest Orchards by the owners Hayden & Amanda Dooney.
This morning-out was so informative. There is no doubt that the fruit industry is such a central part of the local economy; indeed life of Norfolk County and Hayden and Amanda provided so many glimpses into why this is so. Fascinating to learn the rewards, risks and complexities of running such an operation. So great to meet a group of the visiting workers who are essential to getting the job done.
We are indebted to have County citizens such as the Dooneys and grateful for their hospitality and willingness to share their stories.
Additional photos from the day are given at the 'Read more ...' tab.  Well done to Dave Douglas for planning and setting up the tour.
