The Aronia plants are here!

YAY!!! The Aronia acres are now planted. Ellickson Organics will have multitudes of these amazing antioxidant berries in about 3 years. We have planted approximately 2100 bushes in 2 acres, hopefully expanding to many more in the future.

Unfortunately in the first night after planting we discovered the bushes were especially tasty to our Sattre Ridge, organic soybean-fed deer population as we lost hundreds of plants. Extreme deer pressure motivated Glen to be especially creative. Check out his multi-layer, multi-dimensional electrified deer fence. 

So far working wonderfully...
