New Additions- June 2020

We have some news and new items to report-Front entrance of The Fravel House in Historic Downtown Woodstock, VA after repainting in May of 2020

First and foremost: You may not recognize our building on your next visit after its dramatic (and much needed) face lift.

After a year of delays the facade of the Historic Fravel House (where we are located) was repainted and within the next few weeks will have brand new awnings.

We have a few new additions to report like Sparkling Apple Wine from Widow’s Watch Cidery of Edinburg, VA. This is considered a wine not a cider- it tastes like a nice, dry champagne- which makes sense as it is produced a la methode champenoise. It does not taste apple-ey. We are tentatively planning on have an official tasting this July.Bottles of Sparkling Apple Wine from Widow's Watch Cidery of Edinburg, VA for sale at The Virginia Farmhouse

Also new: “Our Mountains- The View from Shenandoah County”. This guide from the folks at the Mountain Courier is full of helpful information about our regions geology.
