Day in the Life of Eight Oaks Distiller Caitlin Bagenstose

When Catilin Bagenstone looks at a bushel of red winter wheat seeds, she sees bottles of vodka—630 to be exact. Of course, she’s viewing it through the eyes of a distiller at Eight Oaks Craft Distillers in New Tripoli. “We used this metric when our farmer was planting last fall to estimate just how many bottles of vodka we’ll yield in the future from one acre.

The Kutztown Folk  Festival

The Kutztown Folk Festival

As a native Kutztonian, I grew up hearing the phrase “If you ain’t Dutch, you ain’t much” invoked regularly, usually followed by a sly wink.

Protect Those Peepers!

Protect Those Peepers!

It’s often said that the eyes are the windows to the soul. But in reality, eyes are the windows to knowledge. As kids, they’re how we learn about shapes, colors, letters, numbers—and the limitless ways in which they can be combined in the world around us. But not every child is graced with perfect vision, and that can lead to difficulties around the home, in the classroom,... »
