Grape Harvest at Johnson Farms – Photo Gallery

Help Support Old Mission Gazette, the Old Mission Peninsula's Only Daily Newspaper

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.
