Greetings from Bunker Hill Vineyard & Winery!
Support Our Small Business!
Today, throughout America, there are protests, riots and destruction. Covid-19 continues to harm our people and suppress our economy. The very fabric of our democratic and capitalistic system is being stretched and often denigrated.
Through all of this chaos, the carriers of the greatest burdens of this destruction are our “Small Businesses”!
No other part of our economy has suffered more than our Small Businesses. While government employees at the state, local and federal levels continued to receive their full paychecks and benefits, our local Barber Shops, Hair Salons, Fitness Centers, Restaurants, Bookstores, etc. have been burned out or ordered closed by the State Governors or local bureaucrats. While most large and multi-national corporations have remained open and prosperous during our terrible pandemic, all manner of Small Businesses have lost everything. Some will never reopen.
Small Business is proud to serve our communities and our friends and neighbors, but we cannot continue to carry the greatest burdens. In times of prosperity and tribulation every American must share equally. Today, this is not happening!
Please seek out and support your local Small Businesses. Small Business is the engine of our economy. Small business is the greatest generator of new and well-paying jobs. Small Business is where innovation and entrepreneurship prospers. As a Small Business, BHV supports our local farms and local businesses. We ask that you continue to support us, so we can continue that mission.
The situation is dire; Please, speak out in support of our Small Businesses and share this letter with everyone that you can. We need your help, NOW!
Thank You…Larry & Lenora

Rationing of Essential Consumer Commodities
Has the time come for the government to enforce the “Rationing of Essential Consumer Commodities”?
Just in case you have not experienced grocery shopping recently, let me give you an insight as to what it’s like.
Huge crowds of people pushing and shoving to grab the last case of water, cooking oil, bananas, fresh meats, butter, milk canned meats, canned vegetables, sugar, pasta and every kind of paper goods. Entire aisles are empty with nothing on the shelves.
Groups of people travel from store to store repeating their havoc. Long lines of people form before the store opens and snakes out into the parking lot. Tempers flare as late comers arrive and refuse to go to the end of the line. They rush into the store as soon as the doors are opened, unwilling to wait their turn.
Into this chaos are thrown our Seniors and children. The longer this Pandemic continues, the more uncertain the future becomes; the more chaos grows. Through no fault of their own, Americans are being forced to compete with their neighbors for basic commodities.
Many decades ago our nation was fighting a world war. It was necessary for us to ration basic and scarce commodities so that every American on the home front could have an equal chance. This Pandemic today is being referred to by our leaders as a war. Isn’t time to spend all of our energy fighting this Pandemic war, rather than fighting over a roll of toilet paper?
