Winter Bounty

How do these crops survive a Pacific Northwest winter? Are farmers willing to harvest outside during this time of the year? I asked all of these questions when I first started farming at Red Dog. To my surprise, there are lots of crops to be harvested in the winter. In fact some crops that we planted in the summer will survive all the way through the winter and may be in the...

We all have our stories, our journeys that...
