It's the most wonderful time of the year at Virtue! It’s officially autumn, the apples are arriving from our local farmers, and we've started pressing in our cider house. We have lots of fall-themed fun to usher in cooler temps, and we'll be throwing our 3rd Annual Apple Fest on Saturday, Oct. 20. This year we will have the whole day dedicated to a live music lineup featuring five regional acts, food, apple-themed games, cider house tours, and Percheron-led cart rides. Grab your tickets for the day, and bring the family!
