The cherries that came out of the orchard first are now ready for their 20 mile trip to the processor. Casey straps the load down. The truck is loaded with 14 tanks, weighing 28,000 lbs.

Off They Go!

The day has gone well and the first load of cherries is ready to leave the orchard. A certain amount of sloshing can occur as the truck goes down the highway. Not too much, we hope!

Tens of thousands of us suffer from chronic and often debilitating pain. Many strategies and products have emerged promising relief. Sorting through the claims and counter-claims is not easy.

We recommend that you become informed and excercise discretion when reading promises of miracle cures. The connection between diet and pain management has been solidly established, and research continues. As always, consulting closely with your physician is essential in any pain management program.
