Adams County Bounty of the County event shares local produce at participating restaurants

Celebrate the bounty of the harvest in the Adams County Bounty of the County event August 11-20.

Chefs at restaurants around Adams County have crafted special menus that feature locally grown produce in new dishes and beverages.

The event is a new way to connect locals and visitors to the best that our county offers – produce from the orchards of the South Mountain Fruit Belt.

Local farms have donated their peaches, apples, and other in-season produce for restaurants that make special appetizers, entrees, desserts, and beverages that highlight the great tastes and textures that come from farms right here.

To participate, dine at one of the restaurants on our list. Order off the special “Bounty of the County” menu of items made specifically for this event and that support the Adams County Fruit Growers Association. Enjoy your meal!

The Adams County Fruit Growers Association holds this event to promote our local fruit industry. We hope that Bounty of the County will remind our community of the orchards and farms right in our backyard as we celebrate the harvest season. 

We want to connect with locals and visitors to encourage them to visit both our local farm markets and restaurants and highlight the wholesale businesses that are a large part of the fruit industry.  We want to bring local produce to local restaurants and put “local” top of mind as we kick harvest into high gear.

A portion of every purchase supports research and education for fruit growers. Both are vitally important for the survival of our local industry as we face new challenges every year.
