This past week (Thursday the 11th of June) we kinda,-sorta, opened up with some hesitancy. It's always hard to know when to open because there's the balance of wanting to have enough berries to share and not wanting any to spoil. This year we were grateful to have just the right amount of berries for just the right number of people these first few days and now we're already headlong into it. The season has begun.
It's always interesting to meet new people and hear about their connections to Iowa. Sometimes that's a relative they are in town to visit. Other times they moved to Iowa City for a job and are just now getting a chance to explore the area or maybe they even grew up just down the road or in a neighboring town.. Where ever you came from, know that we'd enjoy having a bit more time to get to know you but sometimes have to scramble around with our duties here on the farm instead. Hopefully you're finding Eastern Iowa a decent place to call home for now and learning about a few of the interesting spots around and meet some of the local people who all have their own stories too.
We hope to see you out here this year, and if it's not too busy at the time, hopefully we can have a moment to chat a little and get to know you more.
