The snow on the hillsides is starting to melt away - spring is finally here! During the winter, the strawberry plants were safely sleeping, protected under layers of straw mulch and snow. When Mother Nature turns the heat up a bit as we ease into spring, our farmers will certainly have to hit the ground running. We need more snow to melt before we can begin our blueberry pruning and much of the vineyard pruning. Before we know it, spring will be here and we will be planting thousands of baby Christmas tree seedlings throughout the farm fields.
As one of the first signs of spring is on its way, we open our winery tasting room in March. Like the first crocus blossoms, it is a joy to see our guests return to the farm, signaling a new year at the farm has begun.
We greatly appreciate your support of local farms and farmers. Thank you for visiting Jones Family Farms - where memories are always in season!
