Every year, we try to guess just when Blossom time will happen...this year we invited our farm customers and fans to join us for a chance to win a lovely gift basket filled with goodies from our Farm store and bakery...including a savings coupon for Apple-picking this fall! Folks submitted their guesses online during April and we announced the winner on June 1.
