    The 9th Annual Grape Stomp was a hoot! It may have been the 9th for Henscratch Farms, but it was my first and I had a WONDERFUL time! We laughed, sang, stomped, tasted wines & cheeses and more! If you missed it this year, don’t miss it next year! Great job. The California Toe Jam Band was like a trip back in time (sorry to say that, yes, I’m old enough to remember most of those songs)!
    Thanks for the memory and oh, by the way, I now understand why Lucy was making those faces in the wine stomping episode! Nothing quite like smooshed grapes between the toes!
