John & Amie St’Angelo are not your average farmers. The couple purchased their first farm in 2004 with no plans of actually owning an agri-business. Thirteen years later, they own two successful country inns and event venues, a winery, a distillery, a lavender market, and an operating farm with big plans for the future. They can add makers of nationally-award winning spirits to their list, too.
“Great things are brewing in Frederick County as we lead the state in the craft beverage industry,” said County Executive Jan Gardner.
