Sweet heritage

With strawberry season in full-swing around the area, 15-month-old Sydney Yerico, the daughter of John D. and Rachael Genung Yerico of Forestville and the granddaughter of John M. and Colleen Yerico, enjoys a stroll (and some yummy strawberries) through the Yerico Farms Pickin’ Patch in Sheridan. On the right, Colleen’s picture was taken by the OBSERVER at the same spot in the field picking strawberries about 16 years ago, May 30, 1998. Sydney comes from a long line of farmers, but in this picture on the left, eating strawberries is the only thing on her mind.
