CLOSED for the season.


Drop off your plastic bags and canning jars at the orchard and we'll re-use them!

We're always looking for wagons for people to use when they go to our pumpkin patch - feel free to drop off your old or un-used wagons at the orchard!

We're also happy to take any picnic tables you're getting rid of - even if it's just the 'bones' of the table.

The 48-hour Film Project – At Lapacek’s Orchard

004Are you wondering what I’m talking about already? Well here’s the ‘About the 48-hour film project’ directly from the website:

“The 48 Hour Film Project is a wild and sleepless weekend in which you and a team make a movie—write, shoot, edit and score it—in just 48 hours. On Friday night, you get a character, a prop, a line of dialogue and a genre, all to include in your movie. 48 hours later, the movie must be complete. Then it will show at a local theater, usually in the next week.”

Cities all over the world get chosen as ‘hosts’ of the film project – here are the cities for 2010: http://www.48hourfilm.com/tour/ Then some of the top films made will head to the Cannes Film Festival in France!

Why am I telling you about all this?

Well…one of the cities this year is Madison, WI. On Thursday night, Jared sent me an email with a link to Craig’s List to see if it was something we should do. Here’s what the Craig’s List ad said:

We are entered in the 48 hour film project this weekend and desperately need locations to shoot at. Depending on the genre we pick, it would be particularly useful to have some farm land and/or out buildings to use. Also if anyone has a business location that we could use during the hours that it is closed that would be amazing. Thanks in advance!

Well, of course this sounded like something our orchard could handle. So, I sent them an email back offering our location and sure enough – they came on Saturday morning. When they arrived I gave the group a quick tour of the orchard – I think they were pretty excited by all we had to offer. I did manage to snap a few pictures of the filming taking place – I really didn’t want to screw up any shots or anything (they only have 48 hours) so I didn’t hang out as much as I would have liked.

003 Here they are using our fabulous camper for one of the scenes…005 006 They set up their work station in the new addition portion of the shed. 008 And they used the now-empty cooler for shooting most of the movie (the door is closed – they’re rolling… 010 011 015 You can’t have a location with a tractor tire playground and NOT use it for one of the scenes! 017 If you want to see the screening of Giraffe in the Cities film and the other 48-hour film projects, they will be showing at the Orpheum theatre in Madison this Thursday, July 22nd at 6:00pm. A second group of films will be starting at 8:30. To find out more check out: http://www.48hourfilm.com/madison/

Just another exciting day at the orchard!

Thank you so much for the AMAZING opportunity to use your orchard. We truly had the most wonderful locations that we could have hoped for. We will send You a dvd copy of: "The Adventures of Caesar Valenteeno, Episode 62", as soon as it is ready. We look forward to a return visit, when you open for business. Thanks again!
