Local Treasure

“My parents brought me here every year as a little girl,” explains Tracy Gastelo, an area resident visiting with her husband, Steve, and daughter, Gabrielle. “The fields are just so beautiful, and I want my little girl to experience them as I once did.” Gabrielle, 9, runs with her friends through numerous paths among the flowers. Tractors pull open-air wagons along the fields’ perimeter to give visitors a spectacular view.

As I look around, I see dozens of families, young and old, scattered throughout this blooming oasis. Maybe it’s because springtime is in the air and Mother’s Day is around the corner, but it seems the fields leave visitors with smiles 50 acres wide.
