In 2013, Brenda Dedrick and her husband, Warren, purchased the stunning, 440-acre Bohemia Manor Farm. Now, with Chateau Bu-De Vineyards in Chesapeake City, their dreams are flourishing. We'll take you there. We'll introduce you to Norman Hunter, who presides over an auction service, a flea market, a salvage store, and a restaurant. Ever since the doors of the Sweet Spice Bake Shop in North East first swung open last December, it has become one of the busiest – and happiest – must-sees in Cecil County. We talk to the owners. Speaking of success stories, writer Carla Lucas explores the local success story that is the Plumpton Park Zoo. We profile wood-burning artist Carolyn Asti, who is skilled at embellishing the beauty of wood, a fraction of an inch at a time. Cecil County Life also talks to Josh Brown, the president of the Historic Elk Landing Foundation, about the efforts to preserve the historic site in Elkton. In this edition, you'll meet Juliana Hutchings and Ian Sebring, the owners of Appleton Equestrian, a paradise for horse lovers, which builds on its long history with the community. The photo essay, “Where Around Elkton?” challenges readers to test how well they know the Elkton area of Cecil County.
