Orchard, Nebraska has made me feel like I've been accepted into a huge and loveable family that looks out for each other no matter what, and I know I'm to miss being in this loving town.

Orchard is a very good place to raise a family, there are many kids and adults that watch out for each other. Orchard is small and everyone knows where everyone lives. When unfamiliar cars or people wander around the town and it feels unsafe parents text each other to keep an extra eye on their kids.
