Dear Producers:

The Frederick County, Virginia Cooperative Extension Office is joining forces with Francie Kennedy, Project Coordinator for the Shenandoah Valley Farm-to-Table Project, to hold a networking event for producers and buyers (restaurant and institutional) in the Northern Shenandoah Valley. We have titled the event: GROW LOCAL, BUY LOCAL:
OPPORTUNITIES TO BUILD THE LOCAL FOOD ECONOMY IN THE NORTHERN SHENANDOAH VALLEY. Our goal is to foster relationships between local producers and buyers to grow the local foods movement in our area. It will be held at the George Washington Hotel on Monday, February 6th from 9am-4pm.

Please register by February 1st at

There is a great lineup of speakers scheduled to highlight local food initiatives that are occurring in the Northern Shenandoah Valley (Counties of Clarke, Frederick, Page, Shenandoah, and Warren). We will enjoy a lunch prepared from food produced in the Shenandoah Valley.

Attached is a flyer with information. There are also more details posted at, and you may contact Francie Kennedy directly at 540.432.6029 ext. 107. Feel free to contact me as well for assistance.

Please pass this information along to others you believe would be interested in attending. I look forward to seeing you there!
