From wine grapes to wheat to corn to lettuce and beans, we salute the farmers of America as they harvest the crops that feed the world. As the culmination of a natural growing cycle, we invite you to celebrate with your community at a local harvest festival.
Does this mean the end is in sight for #harvest2019
Our Merlot completed fermentation, has been shoveled out of tank (thanks @davidtate8 ) and is now in barrel but we still have Chardonnay and Spring Street Cabernet bubbling away and our Jack’s Vineyard and Mt. Veeder Cabernet Sauvignons on the vine.
Things are tasting fantastic though and we are sorta, kinda getting enough sleep.

Many thanks to the @yamhillvalleyvineyards family for showing me the winemaking ropes at yesterday’s Harvest! 🍇
It was a full day of barreling Pinot Noir, steaming barrels, racking Riesling, digging out tanks, PLAYING WITH WINERY PUPS, and the many other tasks in between that go into producing some amazing 2019 varietals!🍷🐶
I’m so exhausted and have SO much respect for these folks that are out here doing the dirty work for 30+ days straight during harvest season!🍁💪🏼
This week on Farm News Five: #Harvest2019 is turning out better than expected for Hartland Farms. There’s still time to attend the Michigan Great Lakes International Draft Horse Show & Pull in East Lansing. And Michigan Apples is now accepting applications for the 2020 #MichiganAppleQueen #FarmNewsFive
Busy day on the Twenty Mile Bench today @vinelandestates ... @tawsewinery winemaker @pender.p was getting some custom sorting done on his gorgeous looking Pinot Noir with help from @citiswhatitis (sorry, Brad, you got cropped out!) we taste some Foch winemaker @benchwineguy has in tank and a quart of unfinished Chardonnay Musque for a tasty treat later. #harvest2019 is about half way done at most wineries in Niagara
