Let me guess, you want to know about the water. There is 121 megs of water and its gravity fed so no pumping costs are involved whatsoever. The water allocation has never gone over because of two things, firstly because of mulching which is done to the trees yearly keeping the soil moist and also adds nitrogen back into the tree which helps keep the tree and fruit healthy. Secondly, there is a lot of underground water on the property, showing that the soils are kept reasonably moist throughout the year. If water were to be an issue the owner has built a newly constructed dam which is spring fed and holds an extra 20 megs of water.
