Heirloom tomatoAdoration of the heirloom tomato may reach its peak Sunday, when people shell out $50 for the Heirloom Tomato Festival put on by Volt restaurant.

"Delight in a tasting of over 40 varieties of organic heirloom tomatoes, view chef demonstrations, partake in wines, cheeses and olive oil tastings," reads the promotion.

The event takes place at Carrollton Manor Farm, 6601 Manor Woods Road in Buckeystown, from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m. Sunday.  

Tickets cost $50 per person. Children 7 and under are free.

Organizers are promising to keep the kids entertained at something called the Children's Corner while grown-ups savor their Cherokee Purples and Mortgage Lifters.

"BAR-T, the premier all-green children's ranch in Urbana, MD is the official sponsor of the Children's Corner and they will keep your children occupied on the farm," says the promotion.

For more information is available at the Volt blog. Tickets available through Big White Barn CSA.
