Our 40th May in Montgomery has been a huge success. This year’s event focused on our areas rich history of farming and the current farm to table movement. Attendees were blessed with beautiful weather,historical tidbits, tasty food and good company.

Thanks to the three local farms we visited, Bridgepoint Run Farm, Greenflash Farm and Cherry Valley Cooperative, for opening their farms to us in the middle of their busy spring planting season.

A farm to table lunch was also served in a restored barn at Greenflash Farm where the film “Farming in the Millstone Valley: Past & Present” was also shown. https://cinecosmos.vhx.tv/…/farming-in-the-millstone-valley…
