Well, Happy New Year, everyone! Hope you’ve all recovered from the busy holiday season and have settled into 2014 with the best of resolutions! LOL… That’s not something that I normally indulge in – New Year’s resolutions, that is – but this year, I’ve resolved to learn how to pull a perfect shot from my home espresso machine and perfect latte art. I figure that’s a year’s worth of learning for me!
Last week, Bellington Farm, LLC, was a participant in the 10th Annual Taste of Farmville. It was our first time at this event and we were told to expect 800 guests. We planned, and made, 500+ decorated sugar cookies and 120 mini scones with mini chips.
Chris Brochon, from WFLO Radio was there as a participant as well. WFLO was serving assorted hot beverages, including Russian Tea. We had quite the tea party going, with people sipping tea and munching mini scones! It was great fun and the mini scones disappeared like hot cakes. Next year, we’ll be sure to have plenty more on hand for the event.
Our decorated sugar cookies received rave reviews with many people saying they were “just too pretty to eat,” but no one seemed to be disinclined to eat them! The time at the Taste of Farmville flew by as we handed out hundreds of the cookies. The folks at the Farmville Herald stopped by too, to take a picture of us which was posted on their website.
So, a good time was had by all. The money raised for the Rotary Club will be used to fund a number of worthy projects in the area and we were proud to be a part of this successful fund raising event.
