the orchards

The orchards form the backbone of Grandoresberg’s food production, and supply it’s only other major export (after mithral, of course). The orchards grow mainly tree fruit, including peaches, plums, pears, and apples. Vegetables and grains are also grown there, but only enough to meet the needs of the town’s citizens. The orchards themselves are primarily long rows of well trimmed trees, taking up a sizable portion of the Grandoresberg valley. This growing operation is tended over by many of the townsfolk, with plots available for rent to aspiring gardeners. The orchards are a civic business, with profits going to the city, but Vestilin the arborator makes all the decisions regarding it’s function. Among visitors, the orchards are largely cited as the main factor which keeps the city looking nice and living, despite being a mining town, although Mayor Remir’s insistence on wide, stone cobbled roads helps as well.
