Berry Lovers!

Berry Lovers…Jacobs Family Berry Farm just received news that their bee keeper (LS Bees) has harvested about 500 more pounds of honey from this property. He says “ these bees have gone absolutely nuts”. This is good news as many of you have been picking some of this up and enjoying it. 

More good news…they just finished putting up 90 jars of jam. They now have three varieties: Blackberry, Red Raspberry, and now a Mixed Berry (both raspberry & blackberry). The flavor is terrific with the berries now at peak flavor, it makes the jam even more special. Price is $10 for a 6.4 ounce (190ml) container. Each jar has nearly a full pint of berries and low sugar. Our recipe is 70% berries, 26% sugar, and 4% pectin.

Also, they're picking berries daily and getting 4-6 flats per day. Anyone who is interested in making their own jam or freeze for the winter, this is a good time to get berries as the flavor is wonderful. They're not sure how long this year’s harvest will continue…hopefully for another month, but Nevada’s weather can change.

Thanks for your continued support. They're having a great berry season because you have come to their farm. Let us know if there are any better ways we can serve you. We also enjoy the interesting conversations with you when you stop by.

Collin Raye and His Band in Concert

Five-time nominee for country music's Male Vocalist of the Year, Collin Raye returns to the Carson Valley Inn on Friday, August 23. Raye performed "unplugged" to sell-out crowds in the Inn's Valley Ballroom in both 2011 and 2012. This time he appears with his band in a full concert production in the CVI's new outdoor Valley Sky Theatre.

Twenty-three of Collin's 25 singles went top 10; fifteen of these going all the way to #1. Some of his biggest hits were ballads"Love, Me", "Little Rock" and "In This Life" plus rockers "I Think About You", "My Kind of Girl", "That's My Story" and "I Want You Bad." You'll enjoy many of these hits and more at his outdoor concert at the Carson Valley Inn on August 23.

One of the true hitmakers of the 1990's, Collin Raye still continues to crank out soulful, heartfelt material with the honesty and richness that is signature to his vocals on his StarPointe Records label. Collin first performed at the Carson Valley Inn in the late 1980s as the leader of The Wray Brothers Band. He signed a record deal with Epic Records in 1990 and his debut single "All I Can Be is a Sweet Memory" reached #29 on the Billboard Hot Country Singles and Tracks charts.

Raye shot to fame with "Love, Me" in 1991. Listeners were so touched that they used its lyrics at funerals and memorial services. That set the cornerstone for a career built on meaningful songs. "Little Rock" was an anthem for the recovery community. "Not That Different" pleaded for tolerance. "In This Life" became a wedding favorite. He won awards for the child-advocacy video "I Think About You."

Tickets are $20 for General Seating and $28 for VIP Seating and are available at the Carson Valley Inn hotel desk or by phone at 775-783-6606. Doors open at 6:00 p.m. and the show starts at 7:30 p.m.

It's a place where the night sky is still lit up with stars instead of neon, where seeing the scenery is more important than making "the scene". Here itineraries are shaped by nature, not nagging schedules.
