The 2012 Farm Festival will be held on September 8 for all CSA members from 11:30-3:00. It is a day of fun on the farm.
Our neighbors Kim and Mickael Paradis will be manning the roaster this season. Their second home is their restaurant located at 114 Fourth Ave, Manhattan, Paradis to Go. We will have roasted Corn on the Cob and pork and fresh fruit. We ask members to bring a side dish to share and their own place setting.
There will be wagon rides around the farm as well as walks around the farm with Peter or myself. It is just a day of visiting with each other and also getting a first hand look at where and how your vegetables are grown.
Heather Ridge Farm, farmer our friend Carol Clement, will once again have a display with items for sale from her farm. Long time friends and CSA members Bonnie and Lori will be manning the Heather Ridge Farm booth for Carol. Heather Ridge Farm is a pasture based livestock farm. At the last Farm Festival there were a number of CSA members that were discussing yarns, knitting, and spinning. Carol will have a beautiful supply of locally raised and spun yarns as well as socks from her own alpaca fibers.
More details and transportation information coming!
