We spent several days picking Frontenac Blanc, Frontenac Gris, and Frontenac grapes– the whole crazy family. These grapes are always the last of our harvest.

Our phenomenal harvest crew picked Marquette all last week, along with a few other red varieties. And some dedicated volunteers helped us start the La Crescent harvest during our Community Harvest on Thursday evening. All together, the grape-ometer jumped to 52,354 pounds last week. We start picking La Crescent in earnest tomorrow…

Our 2016 harvest got underway on Sept 8 with Louise Swenson, Prairie Star, and Adalmiina. These three varieties make our Black Sparrow, and they’re ready about a week earlier than the other grapes. We picked 10,967 pounds of these three grapes combined, and with that the 2016 Grape-ometer started ticking.
