Marty Lagina’s massive, seven-story winery-three-quarters of it buried underground-is both a wine lover’s and a clean energy wonk’s dream come true.
A few weeks ago, the farmers market doubled in size. Summer had truly arrived and all of the stands were overflowing with new produce-local cherries in particular. All the farmers offered free samples, and there were few shoppers who didn’t give in. Cherry season had begun. To celebrate the occasion, MLUI’s Communications Manager James Russell and I decided we wanted to learn more about the cherry harvest. So we traveled up to Johnson Farms on Old Mission Peninsula to see it first-hand.
On all of my rides, I’ve passed many farm stands, fields, orchards, and vineyards that cover the peninsula, and I decided that I should learn more about them.
