We wish to thank Elizabeth Tate and Wayne Kitzmiller for opening up their farm for our enjoyment. Elizabeth also hosted the very first MHC BBQ in September of 2007. She is a long-time supporter of MHC’s mission, and we are grateful to enjoy Paradise Stables again this year.  Thank you, Elizabeth and Wayne, for your support of MHC and METS.
