5th Annual Harvest Photo Contest Entries

We had so many fantastic entries for our 5th Annual Harvest Photo Contest that we couldn’t help but share them all with you. Participants were able to submit photos from October 15, 2022, to Jan. 11, 2023. The winning photo—featured at the top of this article—appeared on the cover of our February 2023 magazine.

Thank you to all those who sent in pictures and participated in this year’s contest!
