Here’s a note from Ted regarding the upcoming open house at Windflower Farm:
We are holding our second open house on the farm on Columbus Day Weekend, from about noon on the 11th to 3:00 PM on the 12th of October. The fall colors should be at their peak here. We’ll start with a farm tour. Then there will be opportunities for getting your hands dirty. We’ll be planting garlic and winter greens in the greenhouse. We’ll even begin building a new greenhouse. The evening will include a social hour, a potluck dinner (we’ll provide table settings and some beverages), a walk to the hilltop lookout, and a campfire. We’ll make a farm breakfast in the morning, then visit nearby Elihu Farm, a beautiful sheep and poultry farm, and the source of your egg share. After that, it’s either back to the work of planting, hanging out, or home. Camping is all we can offer here, but there are B&Bs and motels in the area. Send me an email and I’ll send you lodging information. Please let me know if you are coming (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Please also leave a comment on this post or drop us an email at stantonstreetcsa at gmail dot com if you’re planning on heading upstate for the weekend, so we have a rough idea of the headcount.
