3rd Thursday Summer Concert Series

Join us for our final concert of the summer on August 15, 2019, with The Reflex 80s tribute band. Step inside the DeLorean and get ready to go back in time…The Reflex delivers the ultimate musical tribute to the 80’s! The band’s goal is to recreate—some might even say mirror—the sound, vibe, and look of those 80’s mega-bands and one-hit wonders you love. The Reflex offers a full-on retro experience with a diverse set list of “must play” 80’s tunes. So dust off your parachute pants, Jordache jeans, and Rubik’s Cubes and prepare yourself for the sounds of The Reflex – The Ultimate 80’s Tribute Band! Hairspray is optional!

Summer Peanut Tasting

Peanuts have been grown on our Marks Farms for years. Bob and Mike Marks give careful attention each year to implement good environmental practices that have nurtured our farm land and preserved our good soil. Peanuts are a sustainable crop that provides natural nutrients to the land. Our families are so fortunate to see nature and its amazing beauty unfold every day. From a tiny seed to a mature plant that helps feed the nation, it’s a remarkable journey – and one that we are proud to be a part of year after year. Growing peanuts is a process that takes around 5 months, from planting of the seeds to harvest. Planting begins around the first of May with harvest taking place around the first of October.
