Geography of Apple Orchards in Wisconsin: Examining the Core of Cultivation
MetadataShow full item record
This study looks at the locations of orchards in Wisconsin and examines the reasons behind the initial choice for those locations as well as recent changes in popular locations and orchard methods. The most significant reasons appear to be family history with a parcel of land, the microclimate of the land, and constructed geographical features. New trends in orchard location choice is mainly the emergence of many small orchards (under 10 acres) near large direct to market regions (cities).
