Kansas Vignoles Harvest 2014

August 25, 2014 Bob No comments exist

We had a great group out on August 23rd to help harvest our vignoles grapes. Anticipating the heat, we started early and picked the grapes in record time. We had an early lunch prepared by our own Chef Julie. A big THANK YOU goes to all of the volunteers that come to help. You made this a very easy harvest!
