The harvest began on Aug. 31. Before a week had gone past, it was over.
This harvest is a relatively new feature in Delta County’s familiar annual cycle of sowing and gathering.
Delta County’s small acreage agriculture producers create some of the best and most unique culinary products available.
Shawn and Janese Carney, since 2005, have been turning the fruits of their labor into one of the most unique local products of all at their Blossomwood Cidery just north of Cedaredge on NE Indian Camp Avenue.
In small towns, in close-knit communities, a building is often more than a building. More than ofﬁce space or storage space, the right building is the community in and of itself; it is the heartbeat, it is home.
Every building in Cedaredge’s Pioneer Town has a long and storied past. The Coalby General Store reminds us of the importance these small stores played in supplying smaller communities and as a place to meet friends and neighbors.
