UMaine Extension cited in BDN article on Albion peach farm

The University of Maine Cooperative Extension was mentioned in a Bangor Daily News article about a peach farm in Albion. When Gordon and Marilyn Kenyon moved from out west to Maine in the 1980s, they yearned for tree-ripened peaches, according to the article. So, in 1985 the Kenyons decided to plant their roots and a few peach trees in the small town of Albion, the article states. “The average lifespan for a peach tree according to the University of Maine Cooperative Extension service is seven years, and the reason for that is because if you plant one in the wrong place, they are susceptible to cold and will freeze out,” Gordon Kenyon said. “I think one of my original peach trees is still living.”
