I don’t know what you did on your Valentine’s Day but we had a great time at the Loudoun Grown Expo located in Purcellville, Virginia. This event featured so many amazing businesses that are available in my backyard. Everything from organic meats to wine tasting were available. We were able to attend the VIP event which was 1 hour before the doors opened to the public which means crowds were at a minimum. As you can see, the VIP event was a success for everyone.
We enjoyed some of Loudoun’s finest including a fabulous “greens” drink from the juice bar of Stoneybrook Farm Market, amazing lavender lotion from Renaissance Lavender, and lots of free organic goodies from Giant Food’s Nature’s Promise. Matchdad was very excited about the meat CSA from many different farms in the area. He is already planning the summer bbq menu.
The kids had a blast with all the great options including games, coloring, and even a chance to spin the wheel at the Shenandoah Valley Kid’s Trail wheel! My boy was the lucky winner of a prize pack for 4 at the Harper’s Ferry Adventure Center. I was the winner of a family meat pack from Buchanan Farms. All in all, it was a winning day for the Matchmom family.
As we were leaving, we received the most wonderful gift bag full of amazing samples and flyers for all the wonderful vendors at the event. We learned so much about the many options available in our backyard. Now to decide which CSA to join!
