  • It Ain’t Over Yet!

    Sixty Seconds with Judi The other day a friend was complaining to me that it’s August and summer is over. Someone else chimed “Oh yes, back to school now”! Now wait just a minute here, Summer is not over! We still have 4 weeks of lazy days at the pool, backyard barbeques, spending Saturday nights in
  • Finding the Farmer in You

    Sixty Seconds with Judi Imagine this: The sun is rising on a hot, beautiful morning. You head out the door where you faintly hear the roosters making their morning calls. The air smells of hay, freshly mowed grass, and yes, a little manure. You grab your hat, your sunscreen, and a bottle of water and

    Sixty Seconds with Judi I overheard a conversation the other day; a man was asking where to buy Raw Honey and someone suggested Linvilla Orchards.

  • Dancing to the Beet

    Sixty Seconds with Judi When I was a kid I hated beets. I mean I “really” hated them! We didn’t eat them much at my house and when they were around, they were poured from a can. I always thought they smelled funny; like dirty socks. Obviously because of this memory, I was always afraid
  • Let’s Talk about Parsnips

    Sixty Seconds with Judi In honor of the Linvilla Orchard’s Winter Vegetable Sale, I have decided to feature a vegetable in my next few blogs. This week I wanted to start with Parsnips. So why start with Parsnips? My family and I were out to dinner at our family’s favorite restaurant. My son and I
