The Graystone Lodge, a proposed restaurant in an 18th- century Harford tavern and lodge on Belair Road, was reviewed by the county's development advisory committee last week and is moving forward, with some traffic and water-quality issues to resolve. Several community members spoke in favor of the restaurant, which owners Steve and Anna Marie Bavett of Baldwin hope to model after the Milton Inn in Baltimore County and Union Hotel in Cecil County. "We are very much for it," said Patricia Dallam, who lives in Joppa, adding that the project would help preserve the rural character of the Belair Road entry into Bel Air in a "beautiful fashion."

Well aware that proper diet is crucial for a cow's health and milk production, the Dallams, owners of Bloom's Broom Dairy in Bel Air, learn the fat and protein content from reports every few days from the cooperative that processes the milk. Correct protein levels in feed are important, experts said. Too little leads to low milk production, and too much can be an expensive waste of feed.
