Page 3 - North Georgia Farm Trail Guide
P. 3

Now in its fifth year, the North Georgia Farm Trail guide outlines everything you need to plan your agri- tourism adventure — where to eat, drink, stay and play. Visit an alpaca farm. Pick your own strawberries. Enjoy live music while sipping wine at a vineyard. Order local greens and a grass-fed beef burger at one of our farm-to-table restaurants. And enjoy a few homegrown happenings — fairs, festivals and fami- ly-fun events — along the way! Whatever you do, be sure to savor the experience!
ON THE COVER: Blue Ridge artist Tina Maslankowski painted this folk art rooster specially for us! Albeit a departure from her award-winning realis-
tic painting technique, she has found great plea- sure in a looser, more interpretive depiction of animals — from the barnyard to the jungle.
Tina has lived in Blue Ridge for more than 20 years. When she’s not painting in her home stu- dio, you can find her downtown managing Multi- tudes Gallery, or offering monthly Wine & Paint parties at neighboring Gartrell Gallery. Of course, you can purchase her art at both places, too!
Tina abides by the words of VanGogh: “When you hear a voice in your head saying you cannot paint, by all means paint, and that voice will be silenced.” Find more of her work at artistatina.com.
