President declares national day of celebration!

Posted 7/24/2010 5:51pm by Cheryl Ferguson.

Today the President declared July 7th to be a National Day of Celebration in honor of the completion of the garlic harvest at Plum Granny Farm!  The President noted that the bountiful harvest of beautiful bulbs of 16 garlic varieties deserved such a meritorious honor.  In prepared remarks, the President noted that the freshly harvested bulbs are currently nestled in 3 barns and are curing nicely.  As part of the President’s Eat Smart program, garlic has been featured as an important part of a healthy diet.  Hey, not bad for a crop of dirt farmers in Stokes County, North Carolina!  Rock on Plum Granny Farm, rock on! 

[Please note that the President referred to in this blog refers to the President of Plum Granny Farm and should not be mistaken for the President of the United States.]
