Video Script::

used to be if you wanted to get fresh from the orchard apples you had to leave Texas and take a drive up into the Midwest well not anymore [Music] few things bring back memories like the smell of my mama's hot apple pie I remember apples were a darn near my favorite food and shared them with a sweetheart made them even better yep nearly every kid loves apples nearly every kid I really wasn't particularly an apple leader I ate an apple now and then but I wasn't crazy about him and when we started growing our own apples and having fresh apples right off of those trees the story changed then I became an Apple leader and I am an Apple leader now and I can't get through the day without at least a couple of them welcome to love Creek apple orchards a place where Baxter Adams can just about eat all the apples he convict love creeks one of the largest orchards in Texas but just 15 years ago the only thing growing on this old ranch was a bumper crop of Mesquite and prickly pear well we bought the ranch in 1981 and and we're planning just to move out here and and spend part time here in part time in Houston but things didn't work out like that and we got interested in our and our endeavors in the hill country and we forgot all about Houston haven't been back [Music] Xtra got out of the oil business before it went bust he went looking for a new line of work and found dwarf apples the experts said he was crazy that it couldn't be done Texas wasn't the place for apples but these trees crude just fine in Europe and the hill country climate is nearly the same so Baxter Adams set out some seed and began to wait I've been told I can do a lot of things in my life and it always gets my dander up a little these are all full dwarf apple trees and this is as big as they'll ever get you see they're just about eight or nine feet tall we don't have to climb ladders to harvest and we don't have to spray a lot here in the hill country in Texas and you know the fewer fewer times we have to spray anything on these apples the better I like it because nobody eats more these apples neither mmm you won't find any chemical pesticides on this orchard mother nature is on round-the-clock patrol with help from ladybugs purple martins and oh yes the bats it's really something to see it's a spectacle long time look at him up there there stretch stretching and wiggling and yawning there and they're getting ready to fly along with the bats and the bugs there are a few human employees who wash polish great sort and stack all of Adam's apples there's no waxing no storing no preservatives and that's how Baxter hopes to take a bite out of the Apple industry I don't know how many times we've had the wonderful experience of having somebody come in and say hey I don't like that food you know I don't like that nuts nobody doesn't like apples what they mean is they don't like big red rotten apples that have been in storage ten bucks you got them taste some of these and they walk out with a bag and the next day they come back with a friend from cider to salsa Nelly to jam Adam's apples have cooked this hill country town on the map and Medina is now the apple capital of Texas they call him Johnny Appleseed but Baxter Adams is just an old Wildcat and oil man who drilled a dry hole filled it with apple seeds and came up with a gusher the Apple production has been busy work and we work hard at it but it's a it's been something that we've enjoyed a lot and we we just think that apples are a good way to make a living in the hill country [Music] you
