Village Vibe event benefitting Back Packs of Love

Napier REALTORS® ERA is excited to join with Movement Mortgage in sponsoring one of the Village Vibe events for 2018. Our event takes place on Friday, June 15th from 7-10pm… which also happens to be the 'LAST DAY OF SCHOOL' thus a great reason to come out and celebrate!!! The event is located at 3920 Marion Harland Lane in Powhatan and takes place rain or shine, so be sure to bring an umbrella if the weather looks questionable, and a chair for comfort.

 

"The Taters" will be our band for the evening and if you haven't heard them yet, please check out their website http://thetaters.com/music/. There will also be a Raffle Drawing at 8:15pm offering up several great 'MUST HAVE' prizes. Or if it's a cash prize you desire, then you'll want to stay for the 9:30pm 50/50 Raffle Drawing. All proceeds to benefit Back Packs Of Love [BPOL]… a nonprofit committed to "eliminating hunger in school-age children by providing nourishing food for their weekends". BPOL currently provides food to Powhatan, Cumberland, Buckingham, Chesterfield, Amelia, Henrico and Goochland with goals for expansion into other Central Virginia counties.

15th Annual Festival of the Grape Returns to Powhatan, VA

Mark Your Calendar for Saturday, October 7 for Powhatan's Festival of the Grape

Powhatan Festival of the Grape
Powhatan has many claims to fame; its biggest may be its renowned Powhatan Festival of the Grape, a high-energy celebration of the vintner's art.

Powhatan Festival of the Grape

Festival of the Grape is a Tradition You Don't Want to Miss 

While many communities throughout the country get ready for Halloween in October, the residents of Powhatan and the surrounding area have their own tradition. The Festival of the Grape will be celebrating its 15th year on October 7.

The Festival of the Grape is held in Historic Courthouse Village, the part of town that celebrates the Revolution-era courthouse that was the community's original reason for being. This annual event connects wine connoisseurs with top wineries throughout Virginia. A full selection of reds, whites, roses, and bubblies will be available to attendees.

What to Expect from Powhatan's Festival of the Grape

Nearly two dozen wineries, the majority of which are from Virginia, will be exhibiting at the Festival of the Grape. Naturally, wine aficionados will have the chance to try their tastiest wares and access special pricing available only during the event.

But that's not all – dozens of craftsmen and artisans will be on hand with lots of breathtaking souvenirs. You'll find photography, jewelry, pottery, knitted goods, glasses, and more. InsideOut and Route 64 will be the headlining bands playing live.

If you're looking for a snack or even a full meal to go with your wine, you won't be disappointed. A dozen different restaurants and food trucks are expected to be on hand. You'll have a choice of everything from fine chocolates or barbecue to pizza or seafood.

Powhatan is no slouch when it comes to wines, even when the Festival isn't in town. In fact, the community is home to two of its own local wineries:

  • Skippers Creek Vineyard
    Skippers Creek boasts five acres of viniferous vines, part of property that has been in the co-owner's family for more than 75 years. The vineyard features a variety of barrel-fermented Chardonnays, fruity Viognier varieties, and blends.

  • Bodie Vineyards
    Bodie Vineyards bills itself as the first farm winery in Powhatan, and was founded in 2008. It is known for semi-dry white and red wines from fine local grapes. Group tastings and tours are available on the winery grounds, which can also host weddings. Bodie won't be attending the Festival of the Grape this year, but that doesn't mean you can't visit when you're in Powhatan!

5 Good Reasons to Love the Powhatan Farmers Market

Powhatan Farmers Market
Every Thursday from 4:00 to 7:00 PM, Powhatan's favorite farmers and artisans come together at Westchester Commons to provide their wares for sale. Whether you are in the market for fresh produce for your dinner table or unique jewelry for your wardrobe, you will find it at the Powhatan Farmers Market from the beginning of May to the end of October.

Powhatan Farmers Market

The farmers market offers Powhatan residents the opportunity to enjoy locally-grown, low-pesticide produce and meats. They also give a venue for local artisans to showcase their good, so you can buy unique gift and home decor options. Items are fresher, more unique and often less expensive when you shop at the farmers market, and the Powhatan Farmers Market is packed with vendors. In fact, our Powhatan real estate agents believe the farmer's market is one of our area's best features, and here are five reasons, in particular, why we think you will love them too!

  1. Casselmonte Farm LLC
    Casselmonte Farm makes it easy for people with homes in Powhatan to enjoy the best heirloom veggies and berries around. Located on the banks of the Appomattox in Powhatan County, Casselmonte Farm primarily focuses on nine different products...bringing the best produce to your dining table. Each season you will enjoy asparagus and forest-grown shiitake mushrooms, followed by heirloom tomatoes, fingerling potatoes and blueberries. As summer moves on you will find blackberries, Bradford watermelons, honey. and baby ginger.

  2. Pleasant Fields Farm
    Folks with homes in Hanover know Pleasant Fields Farm as a small family farm located on a 73-acre plot of land. In addition to vegetables of all types, the farm offers cut flowers, hanging baskets and small fruits. If you can't catch Pleasant Fields Farm at the farmers market, head to Hanover to get your own produce in the U-Pick fields.

  3. Grassbelly Farm
    This family-owned farm is located in Powhatan. As its name implies, Grassbelly Farm offers grass-fed and free-range meat products including woodland/pastured pork, chicken eggs and chicken with the addition of beef coming soon. The farm is committed to providing a natural lifestyle for animals, and all pastures are free from pesticides, herbicides and fertilizers giving consumers a better quality meat product. Animals are supplemented with non-GMO feeds when needed.

  4. Arcangels Creations

  5. Alpaca Woods Farm
    Nothing is quite as soft as alpaca wool, and Alpaca Woods Farm allows you to purchase items made from this soft material. If you own a home in Midlothian, you may know Alpaca Woods Farm as the place to see the community colorful herd of alpacas. When you stop by their booth at the Powhatan Farmers Market, you'll be able to find rugs, yarn, wall hangings, planters, and scarves made from this beautiful fiber.
