We saw a lot of new faces a this month’s Sterling Women luncheon!
It’s always a pleasure to meet new people and have the opportunity to network and get to know them. Not to mention to shop and win prizes over the course of a fabulous lunch. This month’s luncheon proved to be another great event, with Beverly Morton Billand as the guest speaker.
Beverly is the owner of the award-winning Restaurant at Patwomack Farm in Lovettsville. She shared with our group how she studied as a nurse and went on to be a nurse for members of the Kennedy family before moving on to become an organic farmer and restaurateur. Along the way, she became a mother and grandmother, and strong advocate for using locally grown, seasonal and organic products.
Beverly is an avid supporter of local small businesses, farmers and community organizations. She followed her dream of farming and running a restaurant, creating a place that is considered among the very best restaurants in the Washington, DC area, according to Washingtonian Magazine and Northern Virginia Magazine. The Restaurant at Patwomack Farm is a Loudoun Destination Restaurant.
Beverly said she feels blessed to have wonderful people surrounding her, contributing to the success of her business. She is thankful every day for being able to live and share Patwomack Farm, one of the first farm restaurants in the states.
