The farmers at Turkey Knob Apples carry on a 93-year tradition as they cultivate 14 varieties of apples from the Shenandoah Valley's fertile loam. Fed by the area's mineral-rich, limestone soil, apples ripen to their peak in the orchard, developing deep color, crisp, nutritious flesh, and chiseled profiles resembling American presidents. August–November, farmhands harvest mellowed orbs such as golden delicious, fuji, and granny smith. The farm's seasonal availability calendar reveals that at 13 varieties, November yields the broadest selection of fresh fruit, provided Mother Nature refrains from branch-breaking and bud-withering temper tantrums. FedEx whisks parcels of thoroughly rinsed and inspected dainties to doorsteps in no longer than three days after orders process.

Staying true to the charming eatery’s moniker, Sunrise Cafe’s bright, yellow walls surround diners while they enjoy piping-hot cups of locally roasted brews and a rotating menu of decadent morning and afternoon eats. After perusing the chalkboard menus lining the eatery’s walls, patrons can order their pick-me-up of choice—such as an Almond Joy latte ($3.75) or Columbian coffee—to pair with a savory breakfast wrap of eggs, cheese, and homefries packed inside a flour tortilla ($7.49) instead of a pillow case. Sweet morning treats include a stack of french toast buried beneath a fluffy mound of whipped cream ($7.49) or a Sunrise belgian waffle dusted with fresh fruit ($7.49).

Spice Rack Chocolates' co-creators Paul and Mary Schellhammer left long-standing careers in order to make their shared culinary interests a full-time occupation. Before Spice Rack Chocolates fully evolved as a business, Mary worked as a personal chef. She developed an intimate knowledge of herbs and spices along the way, and started to invent unusual pairings of chocolate and herbs, which she left as after-dinner treats at the parties she catered. Her intrigued clientele began to come back to her shop, wailing like zombies for more chocolate, and the business became a cacao-centric endeavor.

In 2008, just two years after making Spice Rack Chocolates' confections publicly available, the Schellhammers' artisanal chocolates won the state's Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services's "Best New Food Product"—an award which they clinched again in 2010. Today, the Schellhammers create 29 flavors of Belgian chocolate infused with herbs, spices, coffee, and peppers, and can hand-paint color accents or tiny limericks onto the candies using color-infused cocoa butter. The spot also creates confections that have been certified vegan, vegetarian, and gluten-free.

As they enter the training circuit at Curves, female guests come face-to-face with the smiles of other women. And just as points on a circle share a common distance from the circle's center, workout participants share the experiences of those nearby by trading stations throughout the 30-minute training session. Thirty seconds is spent on a piece of strength-training equipment built for feminine frames and designed to work two opposing muscle groups with a single movement. Exercisers then move on to a recovery station, where they run, jog, or dance to maintain heart rates and keep platforms in place during momentary losses of gravity.
