The Adams County Fruit Growers Association (ACFGA) has announced its annual Bounty of the County event.
From August 12 through August 21 local restaurants are given a chance to create new and delectable dishes using local produce offerings. Produce is donated by local farms, and in turn, 30% of restaurant proceeds go towards the ACFGA to put towards our Presidents Day Commercial Tree Fruit School and the Apple Queen Program.
Last year the event participants included 9 restaurants and 13 farms offering for instance fruited beer by Fourscore, Peach Cobbler Sundae and Apple Crostata from Mela Kitchen, and Roast Pork with and Apple Dressing from Hickory Bridge Farm, just to name a few.
ACFGA raised $3500 last year to put back into our Fruit Growers Association programs.
Participating in Bounty of the County is a great way to connect growers and restaurants within our community at the height of our harvest season. We hope you will consider participating with us this year!
Farmers and restaurants that want to participate in the 2022 Bounty of the County event should contact ACFGA at email@example.com.
