From farm to festival - how Hanover Tomatoes get to your table

The Hanover Tomato Festival is right around the corner! We went behind the scenes with Hanover Vegetable Farm to see how their tomatoes get from the farm to the festival. The farm is supplying 500 boxes for the festival, which is nearly 6 acres of tomatoes! Watch to see how this family farm is preparing for the County’s biggest event of the year.

Come see us!

Stop by our booth at the Hanover Tomato Festival on Saturday between 10-11 a.m. for a chance to be featured in our next #HereInHanoverVA video!

Visit us anytime Friday or Saturday to spin the wheel for some free swag!
