“We are excited to be a part of this unique family festival for a number of reasons. As a locally-based community bank, F&M is wholeheartedly invested in the Shenandoah Valley economy, where our employees and customers live, work and play. Community is one of our company’s core values, which has driven corporate philanthropy and decision making since the humble beginnings of Farmers & Merchants Bank in 1908. While many things have changed over the past 113 years, we remain more committed than ever to the success of the agricultural industry, small business ventures, and the nonprofit sector. With that in mind, the Community Brand sponsorship for Root to Table made a great deal of sense to us.” – F&M Bank
