August 12, 2006, Summer Tour BMW – Back roads, Mushrooms, and (of course) Wine!
Kennett Square, PA
Travel through the horse country of Baltimore County and farms of Harford County, Maryland into the Brandywine Valley of Pennsylvania. Lunch in Kennett Square at the "Half Moon Restaurant”.
After a lazy lunch, we will meet at “The Mushroom Cap” and drive a very short distance to the Pietro Industries mushroom farm.
When the farm tour is over, we will travel to Kreutz Creek Winery to wash the mushroom mud out of our throats with some wonderful local wines.
Your return home can be direct or, stop with us back near the start for a Chinese Dinner.
Mushroom farm tours are only done once a year, during the September Mushroom Festival. We are being given a private tour by the owner of Pietro Industries. Note that this farm produces 12 million pounds of mushrooms a year. There is a fee of $3.00 per car. This will also help us know how many people and cars to expect, out of courtesy to the places we will visit.
