We are so fortunate that we have so many wonderful crops & commodities grown here locally for us all to savor & enjoy!
For the past 2 months our area has been a buzz with tractors pulling big bins filled to the brim with beautiful grapes from the vineyards, walnut & almond trees "knocked" for their fruit, and olive groves shaken and combed for what will soon become liquid gold. This is THE time...the time that all the fruits of our farmer's labor all year, and results for what Mother Nature delivered, are harvested, picked & gathered, to then be taken to market. For many of the farmers, this IS payday! For others, it is the next step towards creating quality products that end consumers will enjoy in days, weeks, months and years to come; for THEN it will be their payday!
Many thanks to all of you who bring us these sustainable pleasures; wishing you all a bountiful harvest season!
