My parents always say it takes a lot to get a tree to grow in North Dakota. It has been six years of toil and the battle continues to squeeze something sweet and juicy from our little piece of land.
Be it weather, deer, birds, or pestilence I have come to accept this type of thing as a normal part of farming. I don't know if that makes me an optimist or a pessimist, but life sits better for me when my expectations are low and I can be pleasantly surprised when something goes right.
Dealing with the unexpected is an inherent part of the gig. So we stubbornly forge ahead. The show will go on! We invite you to come start picking our delicious juneberries this Friday, July 12 from 9am-8pm; Saturday July 13 from 9am-8pm; and Sunday July 14 from noon-8pm.
If you look you can find something going right, even when it isn't going as planned. Let the kids graze, bake an imperfect pie; enjoy the sweetness in life.
