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.
