Mavis Taintor, the Democratic nominee for 33rdHouse of Delegates District, is hosting a meet and greet event at Earth Wind and Fleece alpaca farm at 3 p.m. Sunday.
Taintor, a horse farmer in Waterford and a former Head Start teacher, considers small businesses like Earth Wind and Fleece to be the heart of Western Loudoun County.
“When we decide policy for Loudoun County, it’s so important to remember it’s not just data centers. Loudoun is also an agricultural powerhouse. We lead the nation in grapes, hops, honey, and, of course, alpacas. As we’re growing, let’s ensure we preserve what makes us great,” Taintor stated “I’ll always stand up for Loudoun’s rural character and fight against the overdevelopment that career politicians like my opponent have voted to allow again and again.”
Earth Wind and Fleece is an alpaca farm, studio, and garden founded in Lovettsville in 2009 by Susan Trask. It is located at 13833 Berlin Turnpike, For more information, go to earthwindandfleece.com/index.html.
