Hot Off the Vine – Cornaby’s™ September Newsletter!
Life on the Farm
Fall and winter are an interesting time of year on the farm. After the whirlwind that is harvest you might think things slow down, but we move right into getting the fields ready for a long winter nap. We’re praying for a snowy season and a good chance to let the raspberries rest. Then we celebrate the holidays, and by the New Year we’re already working on next year.
