Grape harvest is in full swing on the Old Mission Peninsula, including at my family’s farm, Johnson Farms.

I took these photos yesterday as the crew harvested grapes on Johnson Farms South in Mapleton. A painstaking process that I believe involves clipping the grapes carefully from the vines.

These particular grapes are headed to Chateau Grand Traverse, and word has it they’re smashing them as soon as they come into the chateau. And they’re worth more than cherries, which is not surprising.

Here are a few more photos from the grape harvest. You can also buy these photos in a variety of sizes and artwork over at our sister site, OldMissionPhotos.com.

A NOTE FROM JANE: I started Old Mission Gazette in 2015 because I felt a calling to provide the Old Mission Peninsula community with local news. After decades of writing for newspapers and magazines like the New York Times, Los Angeles Times, Family Circle and Ladies' Home Journal, I really just wanted to write about my own community where I grew up on a cherry farm and raised my own family. So I started my own newspaper.

Because Old Mission Gazette is a "Reader Supported Newspaper" -- meaning it exists because of your financial support -- I hope you'll consider tossing a few bucks our way if I mention your event, your business, your organization or your news item, or if you simply love reading about what's happening on the OMP. In a time when local news is becoming a thing of the past, supporting an independent community newspaper is more important now than ever.
