A new farm business has started in Page County, growing wonderful chemical-free produce, offering cow-shares, fresh delicious free-range eggs (from certifiable happy hens), herbs and flowers. Dancing Cow Farm is located in Luray and welcomes visitors. There is always something new happening – a batch of freshly hatched baby piglets, gobbling turkeys, harvesting, milking, planting, etc. Click here for the website.
By supporting local producers you help the local economy and strengthen our community by keeping your dollars in Page County. Strive to spend at least 10% of your weekly food budget on purchasing local eggs, honey, beef, etc. Be sure to check Page County Grown.
