Farm Days 2011

Farm Days 2011 has come and gone. We had such a good time kicking back as people stopped by, some people who traveled from very far, from Florida to see us, Dev. We saw some old friends and made new ones too...
 We had many homemade things, such as this Sunflower pillow from "the boys"...

The theme for "Farm Days" this year was "Community Sustainability", and we did our best to represent as much as we could. Here our some chicks and ducklings from our neighbor, Dave. Fresh eggs, yum...
 Pottery from my good friend, Karen who does some amazing things...

even "The Queen" made an apperance. If you look close you can see the white dot on her back, placed by yours trully!






We even had a cool set up explaining beekeeping. Once you get me going you can't shut me up...








The problem with the two days was I got a little relaxed and forgot to take pictures until the end. We had two other awesome vendors here, Amy and Jody who make the most incredible items out of recycled wool sweaters, burlap, jeans, old silverware, you name it. I am going to contact them and see if they have some pictures to share. I had so much fun talking, giving folks tours, showing the Greenhouse, even chatting with a cool reporter who stayed for well over an hour talking, he was the nicest guy! So as Farm Days has come to an end, we have decided to take some down time and close the Farm Stand until September. This way we can focus on our bees, animals and gardens so our harvest will be plentiful! We will have eggs and anything else you might want, or just stop by and say hi! Enjoy your summer and remember to do just one thing towards Sustainability in your life, it will make for a better you and will help the planet too! Happy Farming!
