Family at the core of California farmstand
Back in business, known for its pies
MURPHYS, Calif. - When they were in their 80s, Lloyd and Ken Darby closed The Red Apple Farm, which had been in the family since their grandfather planted apple trees in 1903. Lloyd and Chris Bunch, who lived 65 miles away, were trying to figure out how to rebuild their lives after both lost teaching jobs within a year of each other. The Bunches bought the farm and it’s a thriving business.
