Thank you so much for the tour Ben and Renee

Thank you Ben, Renee and everyone at Leelanau Fruit.

Learned so much last night, thank you!!

Looks like a good time wish I could have been there

Is this Glenn in the picture, or Ben?

Maybe they should have brought up a way to process and the cherries that get dumped and wasted to food pantries.
