Newsletter: April…Snow? Really?

Hello everyone! Well, I really have no idea what will happen to our crops after this weather.  I guess time will tell.  It’s quite stressful, but there is nothing we can really do but wait and see.   Besides worrying about the weather, we had a pretty good week.  We have been exploring the orchard in our […]

Winter Fun!

So, we are a week into 2021!  How is everyone feeling?  I feel about the same!  I was recently thinking about how people might wonder what farmers do during the “off-season.”  I had no idea before I started working with Chris. Turns out, there is a lot to do!  As they say, there is no rest […]
