Shooting film is so fun. There is no doubt about it. Nothing beats the perfectly imperfect authentic aesthetic of film. The way film captures light, the way the grain shines through, the way certain things focus and certain things do not, all just feel better and more authentic on film. And the suspense! That feeling when you finally get your rolls developed and scanned and can finally check out all of the images you shot is surely a treasure.

Ricker Hill has two Orchards, a Conventional Orchard at the base of their Farm, and an Organic Orchard at top of their Farm that you find after traveling up a steep and windy road.
