Richard’s Apple Festival

FREE Admission! Join us on Saturday, October 19, 2019 from 11am – 4pm for our Apple Festival! We’ll have live music, farm food (our own burgers, farm to crust pizza, hotdogs, peach milkshakes & more), a tasting table, wine & craft beer, and of course, LOTS of apples!

This is a family friendly event, so bring the kids and spend the day in the country with us! Have fun in our petting zoo, take a ride on the hay wagon, let the kids cruise around in the barrel train, or just run around til they’re exhausted. We’ll have badminton & corn hole too.

The event is rain or shine, but no worries – there’s plenty of undercover space if a sprinkle happens along.

Farm to Table Dinner

Middletown, VA, closes down Main Street to host a dinner for 250 residents and raise money for NW Works, a non-profit that helps people with barriers to employment find meaningful work.

The Fourth Annual Farm to Table Dinner brings neighbors from all walks of life together for a family-style meal prepared and served by professionals from Firefly Café & Bakery, a Winchester favorite that provides training and job support for people with disabilities. The evening includes wine, locally sourced fare, and live entertainment. Tickets are $75 or $50 for Middletown residents.

Through the coordinated efforts of Middletown’s business community, the Mayor, the Fire Chief, the Police Chief, and the Frederick County Sheriff, Main Street becomes the setting for a lovely dinner party complete with delicious food, lively conversation, and warm support for a worthy cause.
