Winchester’s Main Street Agriculture

Last Saturday my daughters and I attended Winchester’s Main Street Agriculture–an event sponsored by the Frederick County Farm Bureau to promote local agriculture in Winchester. There was a farmers’ market selling fresh goods and even live animals straight from the farms!

There was also a cow milking and pony ride activity which my kids enjoyed. There were also booths providing advice for cooking, gardening, and even wine growing. There was also live music and plenty of good food to go around.

All in all it was a fun and enriching experience for the family! I think it’s great that the community is reaching out to everyone to boost local agriculture and to promote greener, healthier eating.

Amazingly enough, the people from the local newspaper Winchester Star interviewed me and got our picture on the front cover! How about that!

I feel like a celebrity now! Haha!
