Dining

The Woodmont Writers Enclave Southern Farm to Table vittles are all grown at Woodmont of Virginia, vacuum sealed and frozen to lock in freshness. Seasonal crops will be picked from the vegetable garden as needed and available for each season as an Enclave is scheduled to take place.

Also, blueberries, peaches, plums and apples harvested fresh and made into preserves and jams, along with honey harvested from a hive on the farm.
