Our annual Fall Festival was Saturday, October 7th scheduled from 1 to 7pm. With the sky clearing up, during the morning set-up, we were very hopeful that the storm was passing by us and would bring an enjoyable afternoon. Thank you to all our volunteers who came out to help us with final set-up preparations for our event; by 12:30pm we were ready for visitors to show up. New to our event this year: Patch 22 brought their ponies and gave pony rides to the kids; Grub n Go Food Vendor, a pie eating contest both for adults and kids, and finally apple and pickle bobbing.
We made it about 3 hours into the event before the rain came, but that sure didn’t stop people from hanging out in the barn and even the kids hanging out in the clubhouse and playing in the rain. Thank you to all who came and spent your afternoon with us, to our volunteers who baked for and who manned our bake sale table, as well as our volunteers who made the quilts and items for our raffles and silent auction. We are already planning for bigger and better for next year. Below is a sneak peak and some photos, please click on the link to be taken to our Facebook Page for all photos from the day.

On a rainy day Tuesday April 4 a group of Farmers Insurance employees came out to work on the Farm. The day’s events induced installing wiring a hot wire on the fence, cutting rolled roofing for the barn roof repair, framing a section of the barn wall for the window replacement and helping to clean the horse stalls. The group enjoyed working on the farm and plan to return.
Thank you for spending your rainy day with us at the Farm, we are looking forward to having you back again soon. A special Thank You to all of our volunteers, we cannot keep going without you!
