From the BelleWood Acres farmhouse in Washington's Whatcom County, you can see piles of apple crates and rows of trees that stretch for acres. This is the biggest apple orchard west of the Cascades.
“Spring time’s magical in the orchard,” says John Belisle, who owns the orchard with his wife, Dorie.
“There’s bees everywhere,” Dorie agrees. “The orchards hum with their working.”
