It's a bumper crop of good news over at Murray Family Farms. The business is still relishing its victory at last week's Macaroni & Cheese Festival, where its blueberry mac and cheesecake took first place in a public vote.
Adam Reed, marketing and tourism manager for the farm, credits a positive attitude for the victory against more than 25 competitors, including runners-up Cafe Med and Catering Affairs.
"It's the Murray Family experience. From the energy of the people at the booth to the fresh blueberries, the overall Murray Family experience is what we're good at."
As for the recipe he helped develop, he said it was a natural fit for the farm known for its big red barn off Highway 58 at General Beale Road.
"We took two things that we like -- blueberries and cheesecake -- and put them together with a few modifications."
