Life On the Family Farm Under an Open Heaven: Kangkleberry Pie

Written By: Tom Heck  |  Posted: Saturday, July 23rd, 2011

                Many years ago, shortly after we moved to our own farm here, we would go down to our big woods with our small children.  Usually it would be a Sunday afternoon in the middle of the summer.  We would go there to pick wild berries to put into a pie.  There weren't many down there, but we could always find enough red raspberries, blackcaps and blackberries for a super-delicious pie.
