aronia berries

We are a small family who planted five acres of aronia berries. I have searched for services for harvesting our berries and also have called and emailed a family farm where the berries were purchased six yrs ago. I do not get any response from them. Is there a place you can direct me to find services to harvest these berries as they will be ready the end of August.

How to tell if Pampas Grass is dormant or dead?

In Spring 2016 I planted a single pampas grass from my local nursery along with 10 boxwood plants. The boxwood are thriving. The pampas grass grew nicely last summer and produced a nice plume. In early Spring 2017, I cut back the dead growth (leaving 5-6 inches above the ground). So far I am not seeing any signs of growth. Is that normal? Is it a late summer plant? I am in SW Iowa and we have had both rain and sun. I live on the bottom of a north slope. The soil is good though we have had much mole activity for the first time. I planted the pampas grass amid a stand of day lilies which are just now blooming and my nearby hosta plants all came up like gang busters and they are only 20 feet away. I spoke with a farm neighbor and she said she lost a pampas grass plant to winter kill because we did not have enough snow cover. I noticed my yucca plant which has been around for 15 years appeared dead, but recently a new plant is sprouting from the side of the old plant.
