We live in, and are warmly supported by, a close-knit rural community. It’s the kind of place where people work hard and help their neighbors. Earlier this fall, our dear friend Amy asked us all to come to a barn-raising of sorts. She and her husband are building a blueberry farm, and it’s a huge undertaking.

They gathered friends and family and neighbors to help put their 800 new “babies” in the ground.

On days like these, we are all thankful that we work on our own time schedule so that we can help a friend in need. It was fun, too!


There’s nothing like a hard day’s labor rewarded by a shared meal under a shade tree. Am I right?

We can’t wait to come pick berries and see the (literal) fruits of our labor in a year or two at the future Danamay Farms!
