Ten-day 'Bounty of the County' event on tap in Adams County
Adams County businesses have come up with a new event to showcase the county's growing culinary scene.
Led by the Adams County Fruit Growers Association, the "Bounty of the County" event will run Aug. 11 to Aug. 20. Over the course of the 10-day event, 10 restaurants in the Gettysburg area will offer up specialized menus with the help of local farms.
"The event is a new way to reach out to locals and those who visit the Gettysburg area and want to enjoy all that Adams County can offer, including produce from the orchards of the South Mountain Fruit Belt," said Sarah Lott Zost, the association's promotions coordinator.
Area farms have donated various produce items, including peaches and apples, to help participating restaurants create special dishes and drinks that highlight the largest fruit growing region in the commonwealth.
Participating in the first-ever event are: Food 101, Fidler & Co. Craft Kitchen, Dobbin House Tavern, Mason-Dixon Distillery, Inn at Herr Ridge, GarryOwen Irish Pub, The Pub, One Lincoln Food & Spirits, the Ugly Mug Cafe and Treat Yo Self frozen yogurt.
"We're excited to see our restaurants and chefs working so closely with the farmers here in the region," said Norris Flowers, president of Destination Gettysburg.
