Old farm sites that are long vacant often have remnants of a once thriving agricultural model that fed the whole family.
Among the farm smorgasbord was the small home orchard; and among the orchard the Kieffer pear still stands if nothing else does.
The Kieffer pear has been around for a long time and it seems we have forgotten how to treat it as an eating pear.
If you have ever happened upon an old tree you may have been put off by the hard fruit.
