Farm Trips Tour this Sunday Moved to Wednesday, July 27, 5:30-7:00 pm

You know how the persistently cool, gray weather has delayed your garden’s usual timeline? It’s done the same for our farmers’ berry crops, so we’ll need to postpone our first Farm Trips U-pick tour. That means that the tour that was scheduled for this coming weekend is now scheduled for Wednesday, July 27, from 5:30 to 7:00 pm, so you can wind down after work in a beautiful setting and still be home in time for dinner.  We get a tiny glimpse of the flexibility and patience that farmers have to possess. As Food Resilience team lead, Carol Appenzeller’s farm-raised parents used to say, “That’s farming!”  Although the blueberry U-pick may also have to move, the other tours are, so far, unchanged.
