Page County Grown - the 2012 Season
I wanted to put up a second post about the Page County Grown Kick-off last weekend, which also was part of the Luray Bicentennial Celebration. There were a couple of sponsors I wanted to make a note of, and then I’d also gotten the name of the band wrong. So here you go.
The sponsors who made the sold out event possible were the Page County Farmers Association, MidAtlantic Farm Credit, Shenandoah Valley Electric Cooperative, and the Luray Bicentennial Committee. The locally-raise meal was prepared by Mimslyn Inn Executive Chef Chris Harris, and the band was The Brennan Brothers Band – some of whom were previously in the band I mentioned in the earlier post.
The Kick-off event is where I first heard that the Page County Grown Second Annual Farm Tour and Wine Dinner has been scheduled for August 4. This is a great way to spend a day at the local farms learning about what’s grown here in Page County. A link to my posts from last year can be found here:
Finally, a quick check of the membership list of family farms that are part of Page County Grown shows some growth this year. The members, by product category, include:
The Page County Grown website includes links to information about each of these farmers – so for more info, check the organization out at http://pagecountygrown.com/!
