Plant­ing the 2014 Farm Tour seeds

Rappahannock News - - EDITORIAL & OPINION -

Now that the snow has melted, the lambs and calves are on the ground, or­chards are bloom­ing and grape vines are budding — mean­ing it’s time to be­gin plan­ning the 2014 Rap­pa­han­nock County Farm Tour & Fes­ti­val. Sched­uled for the weekend of Sept. 2728, all county farms, or­chards, winer­ies, coun­try stores and re­lated businesses are in­vited to par­tic­i­pate. The Ar­ti­sans’ Mar­ket will again be at Avon Hall, and I hope that all of last year’s score-anda-half of farm and ag venues par­tic­i­pate again. It’s at no cost to you, and you get lots of free pub­lic­ity.

All are in­vited to the kick­off meet­ing for the 2014 fes­ti­val at 7:30 p.m. on Tues­day, May 20, in the con­fer­ence room ad­ja­cent to the Vir­ginia Co­op­er­a­tive Ex­ten­sion of­fice in Wash­ing­ton. Come with lots of ideas and enthusiasm, and I will ply you with cook­ies and sug­ary bev­er­ages. For more in­for­ma­tion, call me at 540-937-5438 (cell: 540-219-8396), or email me at wit­send­[email protected]­hoo.com.
