Carrying on the family tradition

 

by Wayne Smith

This is a story about an interview with my uncle, Stanley Smith. He talked about his experience raking blueberries since he was a child and about how, at 72, he still has what it takes to rake blueberries. He and his wife Donna are some of the last pioneers who will pick up a rake and do what has been done since the beginning. Turning back time is what real blueberrying was all about.
