THE FARM & THE URBAN ORCHARD

Kilombo de Pradinas has a closed to the public apple orchard in the rural portion of Kansas City.  Our farm is 3.25 acres and a mix of forest and grassland.  Kilombo de Pradinas grows 29 separate apple cultivars.  Most of apple trees will be for used hard cider production.  The orchard is sort of a research orchard to determine which apples grow well in the finicky Midwestern climate.

 

In addition to the cider apple orchard, Kilombo de Pradinas owns American Alpine goats and an expanding apiary. 

 

The goats may be used for goat milk soap production in the future.  The honey collected from the apiary will be made in mead in 2022.  Our horse, Lilliie and English Shepherd dog, Lightning, guard and observe everything on our little slice of rural Americana.
