Thralls Donate 1100+ Pounds of Fruit
While the wet summer has not been great for vegetable growing, it has been super for fruit, and the bounty at the Thrall Family Homestead Farm in neighboring Windsor was overflowing. What to do? Friend and neighbor Sarah Thrall called and said “come on over and pick what you can” to add to the food we provide to our Fresh Access partners. The call went out, the volunteers showed up, and bushel upon bushel of apples and peaches and grapes were harvested. As of mid-October, 500 pounds of apples had been distributed, with 100 + in cold storage, along with almost 500 pounds of peaches, and 50 pounds of grapes. Thank you! Thank you!
