    Ever ate a tomato sandwich? Join us as we indulge in one of the all-time mountain favorites when the tomatoes ripen, a good ole fashioned tomato sandwich. Once again, we'll enjoy the gospel bluegrass of Shady Grove UMC's band, plus the unique sounds of an Appalachian bagpipe band.

    Come enjoy the farm, the exhibits and the mater sandwiches!
