Farm tour this past weekend

This past weekend we were part of Loudoun County's spring Farm Tour for the first time!!!. In the brochure, I described that everything we grow on the farm is done using holistic practices.

I set up a table with my "arsenal" of products complete with The Holistic Orchard book front and center. Soooo many were interested in what it was all about, many people taking pictures of the products and of Michael's book (one man already had it) and I even had a vegetable buyer from Whole Foods who was just mesmerized at our lettuce! We even had a woman from The Washington Post taking pictures which will be in Thursday's paper (be sure to pick up a copy if you think of it).

Pretty sure we'll be on the October Farm Tour which should be even more fun as the apples will be ready to be harvested! Michael, you should join us!

Anyways, just wanted to share how fun it was and how much people are interested in this whole new paradigm! Here is what they saw as they walked onto the farm...

Sounds like you had a fabulous event Joanne

Post up some pics if you get a chance (or links to those of the write ups)

Send Michael a paid round trip airfare . . . that will help ;-)
