Your journey with Pete through Danville, Kentucky begins here! We'll begin our morning in the beautiful countryside on the farm, at "The Farm" Bed and Breakfast. From there, we're off to a "sweet" start as we roll up our sleeves to go "back in time" and straight into the story behind Burke's Bakery, a 5th generation family-run bakery where time, tradition and that one-of-a-kind scratch-bakery taste stand still.

 

Finally, we meet up at The Hub with a local Danville business leader for a historic tour of Main Street and a glimpse into how Danville is blending the past with the present and future to preserve its small town treasures for future generations to enjoy.
