A Tour of Creech Orchard, Black Mountain, KY

Terry Creech is a rare breed -- a second generation commercial apple grower in Harlan County, KY. Last fall Jeremy Williams, Harlan County Extension Agent, and Mitch Whitaker from the Letcher County office led a tour to one of the Creech Orchards. Situated at 4,100 feet at the highest point on Black Mountain, the orchard has a climate similar to northern Pennsylvania and New York. Although many growers said Creech would never succeed growing apples at this site, he has developed a Honey Crisp strand here that he sells at regional groceries and which accounts for a large part of his income. A former coal miner, Creech says apple growing is demanding work but he loves seeing the sky above his head everyday.
