Featured Farmer Friday with Michelle Swain of Afton Mountain Elderberry

Friday, August 24th, 12-3PM

Each Friday, we host a mini farmers’ market on our Tasting Room Veranda with local farmers to showcase and sell their products. Here at Pippin Hill we believe sustainably grown food and wine not only taste better, but is better for you! This Friday is featuring Michelle Swain of Afton Mountain Elderberry.

Grown organically since 2012 in beautiful Afton, Va., their juice is minimally processed with sugar, ginger, cinnamon and lemon juice. Elderberry has been used for centuries for its myriad health benefits. It’s a documented flu fighter and immune system builder. It is considered a superfood due to its high ranking ORAC scale number. A high ORAC ranking indicates its ability to neutralize free radicals that can contribute to age related disease.

Our elderberry syrup is yummy on cheesecake or ice cream. Add it to oatmeal, shakes, waffles and pancakes. It’s also makes a jazzy addition to your favorite summer cocktails like gin and tonic.

Join us every Friday to celebrate our local food and farmers!

Summer may be winding down, but the grill is heating up! Sliders have been the #1 most popular dish on our menu since we opened our doors, and now it’s your turn to learn Chef’s secrets behind the grill. This cookout has something for everyone – you’ll learn how to season juicy grass-fed burgers to perfection, as well as how to recreate our signature vegetarian black bean & mushroom sliders. No burger is complete without all the fixings, and we’ll use produce from our garden to make fresh summer toppings, including peperonata and roasted tomato aioli. Savor the end of summer with a peach crisp with crumble topping for dessert. Following the hands-on cooking demonstration, guests will enjoy a family-style dinner hosted by Chef Ian Rynecki.

Cut Flower Workshop: Agritourism Series

Tuesday, September 18th, 11 AM - 2 PM

Also back by popular demand is another Cut Flower Workshop at Pippin Hill. The focus will be on fresh-cut fall flowers for fall color arranging.

In anticipation of this workshop, Certified Horticulturist Diane Burns is expanding the flower beds and planting new varieties of flowers specifically for this event. Diane will show you how she plants and grows the flowers in a guided tour of the beds and the Kitchen Garden.

Following the garden tour, we’ll gather on the Reserve Room Veranda for a hands-on workshop led by Jenny Hopkins from Big Arms Farm. She’ll teach participants tips on properly harvesting flowers, their post-harvesting handling and the basics of creating casual, farm-style arrangements using our local, sustainable flowers. You may recognize Jenny and her work – she is a regular on our Featured Farmer Fridays, where she offers “make your own bouquets” on the veranda in addition to her dried flower creations.

Following the workshop, we’ll move our arrangements into the Reserve Room to star as our centerpieces for a farm-to-table luncheon featuring veggies from our Kitchen Garden prepared by Executive Chef Ian Rynecki. Our vineyard manager Brooks Hoover will pour the wine options and provide guests with an overview of the viticulture initiatives at Pippin Hill.

Each guest will take home their cut floral arrangement. Event is rain or shine.
