I am just processing this recent event. I am in the process of looking to sell the house I was living in and to buy one in this new area I am living in. The reason for this is m old/current house is too isolated to live with a child now that I have a child. It is very isolated. but it is also located in a very pristine clean area with good water ecetera.
So anyway- we are now renting in a nice town about 45 minutes from my old house. It is still a nice and clean area to live.
So there are not a lot of houses for sale in this area because it is a small town. We have a certain list of wants in a huose but are somewhat open to possibilites.
so we saw a new house this evening and it wa quite nice. A few compromises on the location being a little closer to a main road than I would like- but I think it is far enough up a hill that I can deal with it. The house is really nice. It has many features of what we want.
But one side of it boarders a big apple orcahrd. That would be nice if it was organic! But it is "low spray". I guess they spray a couple of times a year.
The orchard is big and I know they are aware of their chemical use- they say on their website they would like to be organic but have not been able to produce enough apples that way due to pests- so I think they do strive to be as low spray as possible.
But still- total dealbreaker, right? That nasty stuff would be getting into the groundwater- it is well water at the house- etcetera- right?
Just checking to see what others think because besides that it is a nice house and probably in our price range.
what do you think?
BTW I am very organic minded and don't even eat pesticide food and all that. So it would probably be a deal breaker for me.
