This year by coincidence we had a true French workforce lined up. With Covid still present we weren’t sure how this year’s harvest and the help needed would turn out…
Magnificent views are just one of the perks of getting up early and picking this small but absolutely beautifully located field. Growing every year and adding new locations to our farm means more coordination with picking the fields. 2019 Harvest has been a whirlwind of a year. Thanks to all the amazing help we had from all over the world we managed to wrap up the harvest successfully.
This year was truly special to us – Was it an exceptionally high yield? No, not really. Were the fields in mint conditions? No, not really. But all that didn’t matter much this year – As we welcomed our new addition to the family.
Later than the last years but richer than ever – and not just in yield but also in sharing with volunteers – this year was truly special. As we expected the harvest to start a little earlier we had a great group of helpers eager to pick with no roses to pick yet – So we made good use of the time and dedicated some joined workforce to one of our fields that has many Black locust trees growing in between the roses as it is next to a natural forest.
With a manageable size and magnificent lake view it is pure joy to work on our new field. Although the thick and lush bushes had suffered from the severe drought this summer, they have stayed strong and produced new shoots from the ground.
