It has seen it's fair share of celebrities; actors and actresses, musicians, famous writers and royalty.coming in search of solitude. They all saw the beauty of these Mountains. The Equine History began with Carter Brown and continues today with Fence and Harmon Field and all of the beautiful trails. The Agricultural History centered around the vineyards and the lush grapes and fruits. People came together at the table. Meals were not rushed. People talked to one another. Glasses were raised to toast friendship and health and happiness.
On the 26th of June many hardworking people will come together to create a true Community Event. Volunteers will be putting up tables and chairs; they will be dressing these tables with local food and flowers. Volunteers will be preparing this local food. It will come from local farms. Responsible stewards of this magical countryside. People who care about their animals and crops; people who want to stay here and be able to support their families.You will know your Farmer and Food.
