It seems like a long winter, with all the cold and snow. We trust the strawberries are snug under the snow and a cover of hay. We hope the harsh cold of January did not affect the grapes vines. One thing we know for certain - when the weather begins to heat up, right away it becomes very busy here at the farm!
People wonder what farmers do in the winter time - there is always plenty to do. We repair equipment, signs and buildings; we clean the the Christmas tree field by cutting all stumps close to the ground; we prepare our seed orders and planting plans; we prune the vineyard and blueberries; we cut firewood; we prepare our programs for the upcoming year; we often visit other farms and attend farm conferences. At Great Grandpa Jones continues to say here, "It's all fun on the farm!"
We greatly appreciate your support of local farms and farmers. Thank you for visiting Jones Family Farms - where memories are always in season!
