A family walks away smiling, one person carrying blueberries, another a bag of potatoes. A couple strolls back to their truck with an armful of gladiolas and two bags of dried beans. A woman climbs down from an 18-wheeler and walks purposefully toward the tables loaded with baskets of food. Every Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, there’s a happy buzz of customers around Amber’s Best farm stand.
It seems no one can resist Richard Merrill’s farm-fresh produce.
