The Twelve Days of Christmas - Day 1

Original post date: 25 Dec 2016

"The first day of Christmas my true love sent to me
A partridge in a pear tree."

At one time a farmer gave part of his land to growing an orchard. Usually a census that has agricultural information, or in the UK the Apportionment Rolls, will tell you how much of a persons land he used for orchards.

My gift to you this first day of Christmas is....

....where to find your orchard and fruit growers.
