Sunday July 4th BYO Picnic (starts at 4:00)

Folks in our community like to see fireworks. And we like to safely set them off! This year we invite the Farm Fans (CSA members and others!) to a BYO-Picnic and fireworks show. Jen’s parents have supplied us with some nearly-professional grade fireworks and we’re excited to share. Bring some fireworks to add to the display, we’ll set them off for you! Eat and play in the afternoon and we’ll start launching at dusk.

We have an open fire-pit with grates and sticks if you need to roast hotdogs or burgers over an open fire. We’ll also have everything you need for toasting marshmallows and making s’mores. Bring your own picnic, blankets, chairs, bug spray and get ready for a show!

Pizza day

This Wednesday is Pizza Day at the farm! Come out and graze on pizzas with farm fresh toppings while you pick up your CSA share and shop!

Lemonade for Farm School

Along with eating pizza, you have the opportunity to support the kids from “Blackberry Meadows’ Farm School” co-op group (we meet at the farm on Monday 10:30 am). The co-op kids are selling homemade lemonade at $1.00 per cup. They work on upcycled projects too! This Monday they are creating some clothespin wreaths…. Each week the kids build/make something new to add to the options for sale at our farmstand. By either upcycling, crafting nature related goods, or practicing craftsman skills, they are becoming entrepreneurs! They invest a lot of time and patience to make some of the stuff! Ages range from 3 years old and up. It’s nice for the kids see the process of coming up with an idea, design, crafting, marketing and selling their wares. In the end, they can decide what to do with the money they earned…. maybe a water balloon battle, or go somewhere all together on a field trip. It will be up to them to decide what to do with their funds!

Rustic Resort now listed on HipCamp!

We’ve got the Canvas Cabins listed up on a new site – Come out to the farm for an overnight stay and get a taste of farm life! The Canvas Cabins are built on wooden platforms and have a queen size bed, picnic table and fire pit. Add-ons are available! Check it out here.

On a completely different note….. this is why I can’t keep my Row Cover nice.

We’ll get back on the farm journal posts next week.
