This issue’s cover features ripening mid-summer blackberries at the Depot Market’s pick-your-own patch. Tom Parker captured the photo in Courtland during the “Thinking Outside the Box” North Central Kansas Farm Tour.
Dan Kuhn’s family once had 30 acres of u-pick apples: “We actually did pretty well on apples in the eighties and nineties, but culture changes. We used to sell bazillions of pick-your-own apples to people who put up big amounts of applesauce. Nobody does that anymore.”
Check out all the photos from the tour on KFU’s FLICKR.
