The spirit of freshness and budding new life surrounds us in the springtime. It’s a great time to experience the thrill of the hunt for asparagus and tender greens to name a few of the many farm fresh offerings found in the springtime. Check out your local farmers market or neighborhood garden centers, alive with color and the promise of a bountiful growing season ahead. It’s time to get out there again and pick the good stuff. Virginia Grown, Fresh from the Farm…Fresh to you!
