Charlottesville Farmers Featured
This weekend my driver's license expired and I was forced to spend 2.5hours navigating the DMV in order to get one of those creepy new facial recognition IDs. The secondary result was a big chunk of time to spend reading magazines. I happened to grab a Southern Living Magazine and discovered a six page feature on Charlottesville farmers an it's own strong local foods movement. The article provides a brief profile of individuals like John and Nancy Hellerman from Goodwin Creek Farm & Bakery, Cheese maker Gail Hobbs-Page and her goat farm Caromont Farm and more. Page got her goats from Dave Matthew's own farm named Best of What's Around. How cool is that?! Check out the article in the July issue of Southern Living or check out their website where now even they have a guide to farmer's markets in the south at www.southernliving.com/local-markets. In addition it appears that each month, at least during peak season, Southern Living will be featuring a different local foods community from various southern states.
