The Henrico 4-H Apple, Peanut & Honey Fundraiser is going on now!  All products are from Virginia producers. Our goal is to provide quality products at reasonable prices. Proceeds from the sale are used to support local 4-H youth programs.

You read that right. Apples are back! Choose between two varieties of apples: Winesap and Gold Rush. Both of these varieties are excellent eating apples, may be cooked, and keep well. Apples are being sold at $18.00 per half-bushel–that’s only 75¢ per pound!  Read more…
