The frost green background hosts a beautiful display of a variety of locally grown apples within the county\u2019s boundary. This logo is encircled with the inscription \u201cCelebrating Apple Heritage \u2013 Patrick County.\u201d\r\n\r\nThe reverse side of the glass ornament features the Patrick County Chamber and Tourism logos, along with the 2021 commemorative date.\r\n\r\nIn the\u00a0early 20th century,\u00a0apple growing expanded from its small farm roots to become a major business enterprise in the area. Commercial orchards began to cover many of the foothills and lower slopes of the Blue Ridge in Patrick County. Patrick County is proud to endorse our local growers.\r\n\r\nFor additional information about the new 2021 Apple Heritage ornament, call the chamber at (276) 694-6012 or visit www.patrickchamber.com.
