Gail N. Herman of Easthampton is the director of Storytelling in the Orchard. “When I first found the Orchard I fell in love with its setting of rolling hills, trees, and artists’ sculptures. I knew it would be perfect for storytelling, which I began in 2013 along with my new friend, Bob Reiser. The chickens, the ‘Square Gazebo’ and the Apple Store all attract gatherings of apple pickers, walkers, and talkers. We feel so fortunate to have this beautiful venue atop a hill with a view of the Pioneer Valley’s surrounding mountains. You’ve got to see it to believe it!”
