Replacing the Fence Gate Posts

Our fence repair project continues with the installation of new posts for the fence gates.

Recently, the outdoor grounds crew at my Bedford, New York farm has been busy removing the old, deteriorated fence uprights that have been supporting my antique white spruce railings and replacing them with new cedar posts. Some of these posts also support the fence gates. They've held up very well, but after 15 years some of the posts definitely needed replacing. This week, Pete and Fernando tackled two gates leading into my orchard. It's a tedious process and has to be done by hand, but the duo did an excellent job.
