Last week I flew to New York City to attend an awards luncheon. I was honored to be named to the 2017 class of Folio: Top Women in Media.
My college friend Janine Stewart, who also works in ag media, came along to support me. She asked about my parent's strawberry farm in Maryland: http://strawberryfarm.com.
"We should take the train to Philly and rent a car. We will show up at the farm and surprise everyone!"
So we did. We ditched the Big Apple and hit the big strawberry. Mom and Dad were shocked to see me, but recovered quickly and put us to work.
Our first stop at the Edison Ballroom in NYC.
Next stop: Surprising Mom and Dad on their farm near Elkton, Maryland.
In the cherry orchard with my daughter, Caroline, who is helping on the farm this month.
Mom creates the prettiest farm entrance with her flowers.
My sister, Molly, right, owns the cherry operation and helps Dad with the strawberries.
Picking the last strawberries of the season. So sweet.
