ANTIGO - You won't find any pesticide sprays at one Antigo apple orchard, but you will find pigs.
Grandview Orchard and Nursery Stock sits on the highest point in Langlade County.
Lisa Rettinger bought the orchard two years ago with the plan to manage it naturally.
She's still in the transition process of going organic, but she doesn't use chemical pesticides.
Orchard pigs do some grazing and eat wind-fallen apples.
Solo cups and milks gallons make for moth and maggot traps.
Lisa does most of the work by herself every day; much of her work is observation of the orchard.
"Going through the orchard, what is going on, monitoring pest traps, and looking at the leaves, looking at the whole orchard," says Lisa.
Grandview's season will be done at the end of the month.
You can find Lisa at the Wausau Indoor Farmers Market through the winter.
