   The first state female farmers dinner is the brainchild of Kathy Macdonald of Nage Rehoboth. “I just marvel at these strong, amazing women. They do what they love, and they do it well.”I wanted to showcase them within the community and give them a night of love, laughter, great food, and fun.”
   “Nage hosts weekly farm to table dinners every Thursday night during the season and they are always  a hit says Nage GM Mark Harrison. “I am looking forward to the female farm dinner at Nassau Valley Vineyards. Peggy is such a dynamic personality and how lucky are we to have a vineyard in our own backyard.”

The Farmers to be honored:
Peggy Raley owner, operator of Nassau Valley Vineyards in Lewes Delaware.
Founded in 1987, our vineyards were the first commercial wine vineyards to exist in the “First” state. Peg Raley and her father, Bob Raley founded the vineyards on a family farm site just outside of historic Lewes, Delaware.
Peg got her start in the wine business working for Les Amis du Vin International and The Friends of Winemagazine. After several years of globe trotting for the publication she decided it was time to stop writing about other people's wines and start making wines in Delaware. Delaware's laws prohibited farm wineries, so Peg drafted legislation and lobbied the Delaware General Assembly to create Farm Winery legislation for the state. The law passed in 1991. The Raley's opened Nassau Valley Vineyards in October of 1993.

Bobby Jo Colvine, Owner Colvine Buffalo Farm Greenwood, Delaware
   Bobbi started going to the bison conferences with her dad at 8 years old and has grown up around the bison business. Today our herd is approximately seventy head. During the last fifteen years of showing our animals, we have won seven Grand Champions, eleven gold medals and dozens of second and thirds place awards.
We have a farm store in Greenwood, family operated, where we sell all prime cuts of bison meat and choice calves for breeding stock. Our animals have been sold all over the US and we have had the privilege of sending bison to Spain, Costa Rica and Chile.

Sue Ryan, Owner, Operator Good Earth Market Clarksville Delaware
   I am very excited to be a part of this dinner. I love gatherings around local     food and farmers, throw women farmers in the mix and you got my vote.
I love growing food. I think that deep down we all have the pull to get our hands in the soil. One of my first jobs was gardening and crabbing. I love living off the land directly. I have always had a deep connection with nature and the outdoors. I love the whole esthetic of it. Seeing fruits and vegetables growing in the garden is one of the most beautiful things that surround me, it feeds me in many ways.   
Whether you are staying for a week or for a lifetime, Good Earth Market should be on your list of “must see” places in Bethany Beach. Good Earth is a place for people who count good eating and healthy living as important parts of their lives.
