It would have to be hard to find a more perfect antidote to the COVID-19 crisis than spending time in the beauty and bounty of our local farms and ranches. Whether its standing in a fragrant apple orchard, feeding a handful of hay to a hungry goat, or stirring a pot of preserves made with freshly picked berries-it's hard to stay worried, anxious, or melancholy, and impossible to feel isolated. Just ask Lynette Sonne. As founder of FARMstead ED, it's Sonne's job to organize outings for both tourists and townies who want to learn about everything from soap-making to soup-making, cherries to cheeses, canning to composting.
