The question often arises – What happens after Christmas Tree season is over? Simply put – A LOT!!
In some fields we will add straw at the base to suppress grass growth. In some of our fields we will instead add composting wood chips, as this additionally helps to retain moisture in the root zone – a growing challenge in our summers.
Over at the Winery, there are preparations for the coming year’s vintage to be bottled.
The Harvest Kitchen Cooking Studio is experimenting with different recipes to offer during our cooking classes. (Here is a link to the Preview of 2017 Spring Classes)
We are creating some delicious dishes during these winter days with our vegetables and squash from last fall.
That just scratches the surface. If you want to see some of what goes on across the year, take a look at our Farmer Friday videos on YouTube.
Registration for Harvest Kitchen Cooking Classes begins on Groundhog Day (Feb2) online via our website – www.JonesFamilyFarms.com
The Winery’s Tasting Room opens for the 2017 season on Friday March 3rd. The Spring Season Hours will be Fri/Sat/Sun 11a-5p.
