The cover photo, featuring the Barn at Schwinn Produce in Leavenworth, was taken by Tom Parker. The timber frame and wood peg structure is the centerpiece of a wedding venue that includes a small cottage for brides, a photo-worthy sunflower patch, and an outdoor ceremony area carpeted with turf. “The barn’s been very good to us from a business standpoint,” Joe Schwinn says, “but it’s kind of hurt us from an agricultural standpoint because we can’t do U-pick as much as we’d like to.” The farm has strawberry and pumpkin U-picks as well as produce production for sales at farmers markets. Schwinn Produce is one of three farms to be toured on August 15.
