Tour De Farm Tour: Rype & Readi

The following guest post was written by one of our own Board members, Mary Ann Rosenthal. Read on for Mary Ann's bio. Recently I noticed that sunflowers were in bloom at Rype & Readi. I have been passing the sign on the way to see a friend in Elkton and have wondered about the farmstand, but never stopped.


I saw that there were fruit smoothies and thought my grandkids might enjoy picking some flowers out for their Mom and having a treat. It rained, hence the funny look on Nash and Brody's faces, but the flowers were gorgeous in the field and I was told they were planted so that they should continue to bloom for several weeks.


Take your own container and take advantage of these lovely sunflowers before they are gone!


The Rype & Readi Facebook page is alive with cooking classes and fun events. Also check out their website for more events and cooking classes and look for them in November at the Tour de Farm!
