Miss Dorch­ester County Farm Bureau 2016 Tay­lor Bradley re­ceives flow­ers from Miss Dorch­ester County Farm Bureau 2015 at Dorch­ester Farm Bureau’s sum­mer pic­nic Sun­day, July 17.

CAM­BRIDGE — North Dorch­ester High School grad­u­ate Tay­lor Bradley re­ceived the ti­tle of Miss Dorch­ester County Farm Bureau 2016 at the farm bureau’s sum­mer pic­nic Sun­day, July 17.

Bradley, of Vi­enna, is the daugh­ter of Lori and Dwayne Bradley and helps on her grand­fa­ther’s farm. She is en­rolled at Ch­e­sa­peake Col­lege in the school’s new Agri­cul­ture Ed­u­ca­tion pro­gram. She also works at a pro­duce stand.

“It is a real honor to be Miss Dorch­ester County Farm Bureau,” Bradley said. “My fa­vorite things about agri­cul­ture are the peo­ple I have met and be­ing about to do it with me fam­ily.

“I like work­ing at the pro­duce stand be­cause we get to in­ter­act with the cus­tomers and help pro­vide them with in­for­ma­tion about agri­cul­ture,” she said. “We can teach the cus­tomers so they can use that knowl­edge.

“There are a lot of farm­ers’ mar­kets and pro­duce stands that have ex­cel­lent items that are grown here lo­cally,” she said. “I think it is im­por­tant to sup­port those busi­nesses and you can in­ter­act di­rectly with the farmer that grew the food.”

Held at Univer­sity of Mary­land Cen­ter for En­vi­ron­men­tal Science at Horn Point in Cam­bridge, Sun­day’s pic­nic fea­tured a pot­lock buf­fet with chicken, ham­burg­ers, hot dogs, fresh fruit and veg­eta­bles and steamed crabs.

Wyatt Har­ring­ton, of Cam­bridge, also was hon­ored as Dorch­ester Farm Bureau Lit­tle Mis­ter 2016. He helps with a pro­duce stand and likes to feed the cows.

“Run­ning my pro­duce stand is one of my fa­vorite things,” Har­ring­ton said.
