Some hive losses this winter. Sue picked up some new nucs of bees and one package to install into the hives that did not over winter. She will be installing the bees and moving some to Arcadia and to Brakey's farm up the road. At this point pruning our apple trees and grapes is almost done. But, we still have to prune grapes on East St. in Easthampton. We have been busy bottling wine. So far we have bottled: 2015 Wicked Blue Blueberry wine, Cayuga White, Seyval Blanc, NoHo Blush, Frontenac, 2014 Mead, and 2015 Apple Wine. We still have to bottle the 2015 Chambourcin, 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon, 2015 Red Hen Red and 2015 May Wine. Of the wines that have not been bottled yet, we still have some of our 2014 vintages available. So we pretty much have a full complement of wines available in the tasting room. We still have not pruned the Blueberries and soon will have to plant some more. We will once again be selling both wine and other products at the Northampton Sat. morning Gothic St. Farmers market and the Wed. Florence Farmers Market. Keeping busy.
