Congrats to Cora! So happy that Cora Lamar was named Grower of the Year for the 65th Strawberry Festival. She and her family are quite the busy farmers. They had a few setbacks this season. First when their well went dry and then Cora told me they were in a wreck outside of Batesville this past February. Thankfully they are on their way of healing.
