Baronesse barley harvest day set

The third annual Baronesse Barley Harvest Day will take place Aug. 18 from 11 a.m. until 3 p.m. about 10 miles north of Colfax, just off of Highway 195. Directions will be sent out to those registered a few days prior to the event.

This year, several breweries and distilleries that use Baronesse Barley will be on hand to provide samples. There will also be a live band, home brew competition and the combines harvesting nearby.

Registration is free. It is sought to get a head count because everyone will get a pint glass and so driving directions can be sent out.
