Visit Red Root & Co for more information about this innovative young company who creates plant-based tonics, beverages, food preparations, vinegars, teas, and other herbal preparations made with high quality ingredients, primarily using local, organic and fair trade.

Each business owner was invited to tell guests about their company, each noting the importance of the lush surrounding farmland that blankets the Shenandoah Valley. The food and drinks were outstanding, and the event went so well that Food Bar Food owner, Amanda Cannon, invited us back for another in March! We are so appreciative to live in this beautiful region and among so many people and businesses whose values align with ours. Cheers! 🌱
