Before we dive in, we want to send out a massive THANK YOU to every single person who took the time to cast their vote. It's your unwavering support and love for our local businesses that make Amherst County the wonderful community it is.

Without further ado, here's the list you've all been waiting for:

Fourth Place: Morris Orchard
