Open Farm and Field Day

We're getting ready for our first Open Farm and Field Day. We decided to schedule three of them, because everyone's schedule in summer is so crazy. We've got a lot of competition, and how can we really compete with graduation parties, weddings, and vacations to exotic places? To keep it simple, we've scheduled them on the third Saturday of July, August, and September, from noon to 5 p.m.

In July -- this Saturday -- we'll be doing a mozzarella cheese-making demonstration at 2:00 and scything at 3:00. The daylilies are also especially nice this time of year. We have more than two dozen varieties, but most of them will probably be done blooming by next month. In August and September, we'll have other demonstrations and unique things to see and do. We should have lots of fresh vegetables for sale from the garden in August, and perhaps we'll have a salsa making and canning demonstration. The big attraction in September will probably be newborn baby goats. Goat milking and soap making will also be offered on one of those days. We'll keep everyone updated through our Facebook page.

Of course, every month, visitors will be able to see the animals and the gardens and to buy our goat milk soap.

Now, we have to get ready for the sheep shearer who is coming today!

Do we need to let you know if we are coming for Field Day?

Anonymous, the first one was this past Saturday, so we're not having another one until August. Yes, it would be great if we knew you were coming, so we could be prepared for the number of people coming. Also, if you've never been here before, you'll need to get directions from us, because GPS systems will get you lost or send you down a dirt road where you'll get stuck or take you to our neighbors.
