A tornado with 150 miles per hour winds hit Apple Pond Farm and Renewable Energy Center on Earth Day, April 22nd, 2023. People and animals were unharmed, however we experienced extensive damage to our barn, outbuildings, fencing and home. More than 200 trees were damaged. We are unable to offer tours but offer open houses on Sundays to see our progress during restoration. See the photos and videos below.
