- Antique Apples at Lutz Orchard, The Farmers Marketer
Bill Lutz's dairy farm and apple orchard are located amid lovely centennial farms that line Macon Road (an old Indian trail, he says) between Saline and Tecumseh. Outside a sign advertises both Apples and Åpfels, a nod to the German lineage of Lutz's family, one of the many German families that settled in this part of Michigan. Lutz's great-grandfather purchased the farm in 1882. In 1884, that same great-grandfather built the solid red barn where Lutz now stores his apples along with the straw and hay a nephew grows for Lutz's 22 dairy cows.
