Hey, Breaux!

Posted on

Or, should I say Hey, Bro?

We needed to go to Harper’s Ferry today to get the last piece of my husband’s tower sections. With it, he will have all the necessary parts to put up his radio tower. He just needs the antenna(s) now. Pieces and parts all over the place. But, getting closer to pouring concrete.

I went along for the ride only on the condition I could stop at Breaux and pick up our cellar club allocations. The last time we were there, was in March. I blogged about how pretty the winery is, and how we took local cheese to have lunch there. The scenery is still wonderful. Definitely early for fall foliage, as the Blue Ridge mountains are still very blue.

And, wouldn’t you know it? They sell ajvar. Never heard of it a year ago. Now, I am finding it everywhere. This version is garlicky and goes very well with the Rose.

The nice thing about Breaux is the fact that they are open every day. Not just weekends. For us, that is a benefit. Go there during the week and there are no limos, crowds, lines. They sell baguettes, cheeses, olives, spreads and cured meats like salami and prosciutto.

If you want something else to do this month (as if there isn’t enough going on around here), they have a harvest celebration next weekend (13th) and a farm tour the following weekend, the 20th and 21st. Trick or Treat the last weekend of October. They are only 50 miles west of Columbia, just south of Harper’s Ferry.

The red grapes are being harvested right now. It is perfect weather to sit out and enjoy the scenery.

Retired, I am following my dream of living in quiet west Howard County, a rural oasis, not far from the urban chaos, but just far enough. I love to cook, bake, garden, and travel. I volunteer at Howard County Conservancy. I lead nature hikes, manage programs and show children all the wonders of nature, and the agricultural connection to their food.

  1. If any of you have read the news stories about the organic farmer in Potomac, MD fighting with the local government to keep his farm (the gov’t wants to tear it down to build soccer fields), NIck Maravell is also having an open house with lots of activities in Adamstown, MD (not too far from Frederick) on Oct 20-21. Check out the website for details (http://www.nicksorganicfarm.com ). I’ve been buying organic beef from NIck for years, he also sells poultry & eggs.

  2. It should be Nick, not NIck.
