As the father of two girls, I was absolutely suckered into a new three-part video series, “My Name is Haedyn” which follows Haedyn Maberry in and around her family's raspberry farm from winter to harvest as she watches the raspberries "sleep," helps her uncle "fix" broken tractors, and prepares to freeze raspberries using "just cold air." Discover the love, science, hard work, and generations—from 5-year-olds to 85 year-olds—that make the farming and processing of red raspberries a treasured passion. What farmer does not dream of their work being passed down to the next generation, not only as work, but also as a noble and beautiful way of life—one that involves sharing your finished gifts (in this case, frozen raspberries) with the world?
