    Sixty Seconds with Judi I want to scream it from the hill tops- “Pumpkinland opens this Saturday”! My friends ask me all the time if I am ready for this, as if it were something to fear. I should tell you Pumpkinland is what we live for here at Linvilla Orchards! Nothing excites us more.

  • Eat Fresh, Buy Local

    Sixty Seconds with Judi I see these signs everywhere- Eat Fresh, Buy Local. I know this is a campaign to encourage folks to buy from their local farm markets. I understand advertising, I guess in a way that is what I am doing here. But, my question is why do we need to encourage folks
