"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, promotions coordinator with the Adams County Fruit Growers Association , the organization leading the event. "Local farms have donated their peaches, apples and other produce to turn into special appetizers, entrees, desserts and beverages that highlight the great tastes and textures that come from farms right here."
"Bounty of the County" is the latest in Adams County's insurgence as a culinary destination. Gettysburg and the surrounding countryside boast a variety of foodie experiences, including great restaurants, food tours and events throughout the year. In addition, the region features a variety of wineries, cideries, craft breweries and distilleries - many of which pull ingredients straight from the Adams County soil.
"This new event is a great addition to the culinary experience in Adams County," said Norris Flowers, President of Destination Gettysburg. "We're excited to see our restaurants and chefs working so closely with the farmers here in the region."
Those wishing to participate in the "Bounty of the County" event simply need to visit one of the participating restaurants between Aug. 11-20 and choose from a variety of food and drink items on the customized menus.
