Crozet Artisan Depot is featuring the delicious foods of Homegrown Virginia during December. Ivy resident Allie Hill, founder of Homegrown Virginia, will be at the opening reception on Saturday, December 10th from 2 to 5 p.m. in the historic Crozet train depot.
At the reception, Allie will be sampling a variety of foods created from local farm produce, including jams, jellies, and sauces. Her company, Homegrown Virginia, makes small batch recipes highlighting produce picked at the peak of ripeness. Their motto is “locally grown and locally produced”.
In addition to making a wide array of specialty foods, Allie is the Project Director for the non-profit Virginia Food Works. Food Works assists farms and food entrepreneurs as they navigate the world of making retail foods such as sauces, vinaigrettes and spreads. Food Works operates out of the Prince Edward Cannery where canning locally-grown foods for both personal use and retail sales has been a longstanding tradition.
