The part of the year you love will get here soon enough, friends advise, so just "hold your horses" (another longtime chestnut). But practically no one would ever say that about the period that encompasses all things harvest.

Galvan Cellars, Mangels Vineyards, Cal-Yee Farms, and several other area stalwarts will play a part in the celebratory day. Can you smell the jams and oils from here? Point your nose, taste buds, and sense of direction this-a-way.
