Greg Koch from Stone Brewing, Susan Duniphin & Keiffer Koch arrived for a short visit today. We started with some picture taking opportunities at the edge of the mesa.

We had a lovely lunch at Flying Fork in Paonia and then got a great tour of both Revolution Brewing’s new brewing facility and their tasting room. Of course I didn’t get any pictures but Greg took video and it should be up on you tube soon.

Next stop was off to Monica’s Small Potatoes Farm to see what to get for dinner tonight. She let us dig out a couple of potato plants, some fresh garlic and some lovely cooking greens. Then off to Terror Creek Winery for tastings. Greg tweeted from there.

Winery number 2 is Stone Cottage Cellars. Here is Greg, Karen Helleckson & Brent Helleckson in the cellar at Stone Cottage. Final winery stop was Azura Cellars. No pictures because we were running late by then.

Part of the rush to get back was to get home in time to do chores and let Judd in the field to cut our hay. Greg is enjoying a Revolution Beer while watching Judd do all the work.

This field has been years getting in shape to hay and this first ever cutting looks really good. It’s about 2 acres so it will be interesting to see how much we actually get off it.
