Mexico Tuesday implemented punitive tariffs starting at ten percent and escalating to 20 percent next month on unprocessed pork. The list, according to meat industry publication Meatingplace, includes a 20 percent tariff on U.S. hams and pieces of ham, as well as fresh and frozen pork legs, shoulders, and their pieces without bones. The Mexican ministry will also open a 350,000-metric-ton tariff-free quota for imports of pork legs and shoulders from other countries.Mexico is the largest export market for U.S. pork, representing nearly 25 percent of all U.S. pork exports. National Pork Producers Council President Jim Heimerl says the tariff “eliminates our ability to compete effectively in Mexico.” In a statement, U.S. Meat Export Federation President and CEO Dan Halstrom said the action by Mexico will “negatively impact everyone in the U.S. supply chain,” along with harming Mexican consumers and “potentially open up a tremendously strong market to a whole new range of competitors.”last_img read more

The Virginia Creeper Trail: the most scenic bike ride on the east coast?

first_imgStart in downtown Abingdon, VA, for a leisurely ride through rolling farmland. Along this section of the trail, it’s not uncommon to see grazing horses and cows. Some might even come right up to the fence to say hello!  The “lower” section also features the most stunning trestle bridges, and easy access to Abingdon Vineyards, a farm winery located along the South Holston River. Don’t feel like biking back to Abingdon? Schedule a shuttle pick up at any of several points along the way. The Virginia Creeper Trail is one of the most accessible trails you’ll find, with plenty of outfitters, lodging and dining nearby. It’s equally popular with beginners and advanced riders; multiple entry points mean that you can enjoy an easy 2-hour ride, or challenge yourself with an all-day, 68-mile round trip. Although biking is popular with visitors, don’t forget that hiking and horseback riding are also permitted. Alternately,take a shuttle to Whitetop Station in Jefferson National Forest, to bike the“upper” section.   Then enjoy an easy 17-mile coast/pedal downthe mountain to Damascus, VA. Following the route of an old railroad bed, the Virginia Creeper Trail is named for the steam engine that once chugged along it and for the Virginia Creeper vine that populates the area. With the abandonment of many railroads in the 1970s, a national movement gained momentum to convert train tracks into trails. A coalition of local citizens, government and the US Forest Service banded together to acquire the old railroad right-of-way, and thus the Creeper Trail was born in 1987. Forty-seventrestle bridges provide scenic views of the region’s creeks, farmland, and mountainforests. While technically considered a mountain biking trail, the VirginiaCreeper is well-maintained and consists mostly of crushed stone, so it can beeasily navigated on a hybrid or road bike. The 34-mile multi-use trail begins in Abingdon, a popular access pointat Mile Marker 0, and then carries on through rolling farmland to Damascus atMile 15.5. From there, the Virginia Creeper winds up to its highest point atWhitetop Station, winding through Appalachian hardwoods and alongside coldmountain streams filled with native brook trout.  After the trail, round out your trip with a stop at Wolf Hills Brewing in Abingdon, or make it a long weekend with a show at Barter Theatre, and live music at Bonefire Smoke House and Musictorium. Abingdon is a foodie destination, recently named Best Small Town Food Scene in the country by USA Today Travel.  This ridetakes anywhere from 2 to 4 hours, depending on your pace. Stops along the wayinclude the old railroad station at Green Cove, operated by the US ForestService; check out the high trestle at Creek Junction, where the trail runsbeside some of the best trout fishing in Virginia. last_img read more
