Welcome to the Patrick Henry Tea Party!
We created this site to keep the citizens of western Hanover County and
surrounding areas informed about important governmental issues affecting
citizens on the local, state and national levels. We are a non-partisan grassroots
organization with a focus on smaller, less-intrusive government, fiscal prudence,
adherence to our Constitution and unashamed patriotism.

Self-Reliance - Did you know
that Hanover has a Cannery??
The cannery opened on Friday, July 1. It will be open
Mondays (including July 4), Wednesdays, Fridays and
Saturdays in July and August. The Cannery will be open on
Saturdays in September and October.
On Mondays during these months, processing can take
place between 4-7 p.m. (the cannery closes at midnight on
Mondays). On the other days of the week, processing can
take place between 8:30-10 a.m., with the Cannery closing
at 3 p.m.
The canning process must begin during these designated
times in order to have the process completed by the
Cannery closing time. Processes that take longer than the
average of five hours must be approved in advance by the
Cannery Supervisor. Please call the Cannery Supervisor to
check on the availability before you travel. The Cannery
Supervisors number is (804) 365-6484.
For Hanover County residents, the cost is $1.17 a can or
.30 cents a jar. For those who do not live in Hanover, the
charge is $1.32 per can and .40 cents per jar.
You must bring your own jars. Additional charges apply for
use of the kettle, blancher or corn machine.
If you have bountiful produce from your garden, and you
want to prepare for the winter, this might be just what you
were looking for!
