  • Orchard teams up with Society of St. Andrew

        Twenty years ago a storm came through and knocked a lot of fruit off the trees at Gross’ Orchard in Bedford.

        That fruit was usable, but could not be sold.
        That, according to Ronnie Gross, is when they learned about the Society of St. Andrew in Big Island, and were able to coordinate the gleaning of the fruit at the Gross’ Farm.
        That partnership has been ongoing for the past two decades, including last week during the Commonwealth Day of Gleaning.

  • Church youth plant crops to give to others

        Bedford Baptist Church has been planting potatoes for the Society of St. Andrew and Shepherd’s Table for five years, according to Ben Shrader. Shrader spent a sunny afternoon last week with a tractor digging up the taters in the 45-by-90 foot plot where they were planted. The church’s youth group showed up later to put them in bags. Shrader said that they got 1,400 pounds of them last year.

  • With its doors shut, new owner sought for Court Street UMC

        A piece of Bedford history is for sale.

        Court Street United Methodist Church, with a dwindling congregation, closed after a final worship service on Nov. 19, 2011. There were only 10 members left. Now, the building sits empty, except for visits by Danny Thompson. Thompson, now 58, grew up in the church and has the key. He acts as the agent for the congregation.
        “It’s hard, it’s hard,” he said. “Every time I come in here, I get choked up.”
