      No, they aren’t.  Apples, for example, are native to Kazakhstan.

    I just returned home from Rexton New Brunswick where I was helping friends with their harvest. They currently have 38 acres in production. Beds average 4 to 5 acres each. The last one we did before I left yielded 85,000 lbs & they expect a total harvest on their farm to be 1.1 to 1.2 million lbs.

    It’s hard work but fun to be able to help out friends. Long days & short nights but good food & great company.
