Wednesday morning - come rain or shine - Sakuma Brothers Farms!

Yay! After seeing numerous black and white photographs of members of the Sakuma family from generations back I get to meet Steve who I believe is a 4th generation farmer at Sakuma Brothers Farms in Burlington. This is one of the most established farms in the valley and I can only imagine how many family members have worked it. The person behind the farmer ... stories! stories! stories!

I'll also get clarification about this excerpt from their website because among other things I have no idea what a caneberry plant is or what the total package they can provide us is. The education continues.

"Certified strawberry and caneberry plant nursery, small fruit production, processing, fresh market, and sales.

Sakuma Brothers is a family business spanning four generations with over 85 years experience in the small fruit industry. We can provide a total package to you - something that no other company in the small fruit industry can match."
Be sure to follow this blog if you're interested in my adventures with Skagit Valley farmers.
