Live from Salt Lake City Utah, brought to you by Thyme and Place, this is the first show from the first night of The Sodshow Live. Peter Donegan was there for a little over one week were 6 guests in total, over 2 nights either side of St Patricks Day 2017 were interviewed in front of a live audience. 

Stray Arrow Ranch is a 6 acre farm that grows 500 apple trees and has become Utahs first Orchard based cider making operation. The wonderful people behind this are Robert Marc and Ann Torrence.

Very much more to the reason why I admire them more, neither Ann nor Robert hold any formal horticultural training. Ann is in fact a former travelling photographer and author; and Robert a university scientist.

Of interest to you based in the UK and Ireland side of the globe, Stray Arrow Ranch gets about 12 inches of water per annum and because of the rights to water – they are allowed 12 hours of water per approximate 10 days – making, horticulture in mind, the growing of plants just that little more challenging.

We get into this, grafting of trees, Ann’s book, how Robert and Ann actually met and just how they managed to settle in Utah and why they left their jobs to set up what is now Stray Arrow Ranch.
