I made a trip out to extreme western Minnesota to attend the Big Stone County Harvest Fest. My niece Jessica’s family and her husbands cousins were selling garlic at a booth there. Jess and Les are excited about their new venture and it was fun sharing the weekend with them.
The prairie landscape reminded me of how much I enjoyed our model A road trip out west last year. I was so happy to take the time to travel the back roads again. It took me 2 hours to drive the 12 miles between their farm and Ortonville stopping every quarter-mile or so to take photos. Life doesn’t get better than that.
This past week I set them up with an e-commerce site: bigstonegarlic.com. I posted my photos on their Farm News blog. Take a look. This is my shameless way of sending traffic their way. Smile.
