LDS vineyard land may be sold

LAYTON, UTAH-- The largest vineyard operated by the LDS Church relief system may be sold. The 40-acre field is expected to become part of a buffer system around a landfill run by Wasatch Energy Systems.

Although the vineyard produces 390,000 pounds of grapes annually, the church's emphasis on worldwide relief and disaster aid makes grapes less useful. John McCormack, manager of the vineyard before the field was plowed one month ago, said that "What it really just boiled down to was it just wasn't a life sustaining substance. They have to make room right provide life sustaining substances." The grapes were used to make grape juice concentrate, but the product was deemed too heavy to ship economically as part of the church's worldwide relief effort.
