Savor & Sample – 2010 – at Lapacek’s Orchard!

Yes, the news in the paper’s and the word on the street is true.  Lapacek’s Orchard is the host of this year’s Columbia Counties Savor & Sample Fest.  What is the Savor and Sample Fest?  Well… we’re hoping to help you rediscover the benefits of buying and eating locally grown food.

Features of the fest:
