Who’s a Friend of the Farm?
You’ll know if you qualify.
Bring the Kids
Kids love the farm! (But unfortunately you can’t bring your pets.)
11 a.m to 12:30 p.m: Arrive
Park along the drive. (It’s usually extra busy here before 11, so we don’t recommend showing up early.) Check in at the big barn.
Mingling, Hayrides, Exploring
There will be hayrides before lunch–hop on to a wagon and see everything growing. Travel the farm. Browse our U-Pick Garden. Some flowers and usually the snap beans and peas are ready for the July Field Day. Check our U-Pick page for updates just prior to the Field Day, so you know what will be available.
12:30 pm to 1:30 pm: Potluck–Please bring a large dish to pass
* The dishes at our Field Days are always phenomenal, whether carnivore, vegetarian or vegan (or rich desserts), but sometimes we run short on food–this is not to be on a farm that is all about food! Please bring a dish that will serve at least 15.
* Bring the recipe that goes with your dish; recipes accompanying dishes are a hit. Put your name & your delivery site on the recipe, so admirers can track you down & lavish you with praise. (10 copies on 3×5 cards would be great.)
* Please bring your own beverage. We furnish some tables and chairs. Consider bringing a blanket on which to picnic, so we don’t have to provide so many chairs.
1:45 pm to 2:30 pm: CSA Meeting
Offer suggestions about Food & Farming. Sometimes there is entertainment at this time. Check Farm News in the weeks leading up to the Field Day for announcements of a special Field Day event.
3 pm to 4 pm: One More Hayride
Farmer John, The Farm Crew and the Staff of the Angelic Organics Learning Center
