The Lighting Project

We’d had enough. The ceiling fan that we installed when we moved into the house in 2002 just wasn’t giving us enough light.  Every winter, especially, we’d squint to see what was bubbling on the stove. And then, to top […]

Farmers Market Loot!

Sour Cherry Farm fans from way back may remember an old feature, “Farmers Market Loot.” We’ve decided to bring it back, as much for “the record,” as posterity. How have things changed over the years? Do farmers bring new products […]
