WATERPORT – Brown’s Berry Patch has hosted a 5-kilometer run and walk at its farm since 1996. The Oct. 11 event raised $3,615 for Hospice of Orleans, one of the highest totals in the race’s history.

The residence opened almost two years ago and includes eight residential suites for Hospice patients.
