Senior Adults to Visit York Farm

St. Paul’s Senior Adults will visit York Farm in Mt. Airy on Saturday, June 9.

York Farm was founded by Wesley York in the late 1800s. His great-grandson, former parishioner Kyle Montgomery, is now farming the land.

York Farm supplies a number of farm-to-table restaurants, including the Diamondback Grill.

The group will travel by bus, leaving the side parking lot at 9:00 a.m. After a  two-hour tour of the farm, the group will eat lunch at 13 Bones in Mt. Airy.

To reserve your place, send a check payable to St. Paul’s for $25 per person  to Senior Adults Minister Anne Rahn. The cost of lunch is not included. Contact Anne at (336) 723-4797 or arahn@stpauls-ws.org.
