Blessing of the Blossoms at Minnesota Harvest

Posted on May 17, 2011 by

We are so excited to announce another apple season at Minnesota Harvest, under new management! K2 Management is none other than our very own innkeeper Kevin Knox, and former innkeeper (when Nicolin Mansion was known as the Nicolin Inn), Kevin Breeggemann!

They are kicking off the season with the Blessing of the Blossoms event on Sunday, May 22nd beginning at 2:00 p.m. Bring a picnic lunch and a blanket, and enjoy an afternoon of live music amongst the apple blossoms.

Kevin (Knox) was great friends with Topper Sponsel, and along with his family, this event is in honor of and in tribute to Topper! We are hoping for Topper’s spirit to be present amongst us as we bless the blossoms for a truly spectacular season at the orchard.
