This extensive orchard is located a mile east of the East Side Drive near Kilty's Point. When Sybil Larsen was a young woman her husband, Big Art, was hired to pick up apples from Pfieffer's at the dock at Nomad, and she rode along; it was her first trip to the south end of the Island on which she had been born.
This orchard was very productive until Pfieffer made a fatal mistake. He asked the experts at the Michigan Agricultural College (now MSU) for advice. He followed their recommendations, which killed many of his trees and impeded the yield from the rest..
