End of Day Dinner...
Maize Valley has shifted their trajectory as a farm and production over the years, in part due to surrounding businesses. We will experience one of them with dinner at Hartville Kitchen Restaurant, and learn the history of their operation while seeing new ideas in customer marketing and connection. This added piece to the "why" behind Maize Valley's story and experience will better shape the next two days of why/what/how from the Maize Valley family and staff.
