FALL FESTIVAL UPDATE for Friday 21 September 2012
Hooray! Festival Day is almost here!
We’re busily preparing to welcome you, and what will you find when you arrive? Cheerful farmers and our friends just waiting to share with you the beauty and delights of the farm and the happy, adventuresome possibilities that our non-profit, Omnia Humanitas, encourages in us all.
TOURS … There will be tours of the fields, greenhouse, goat paddock, and “Chickentopia”. You can feed the goats ivy and carrot peelings, and grapes and grass to the chickens.
DISPLAYS … There will be a display of the “tools of our trade”, a presentation about drip irrigation, a slide show about the history of and differences between organic and sustainable agriculture, and a plowing demonstration.
DEMONSTRATIONS … There will also be demonstrations of beekeeping, drop spindle spinning, tatting, primitive forge work, and bow lathe wood-turning.
FOR THE CHILDREN … The children can enjoy games from the olden days, have their faces painted, watch a retelling of The Three Billy Goats Gruff, and find their way along what one of our little friends calls, “The Secret Path” (It’s really a tiny bit of deer path we like to traverse!)
SILENT AUCTION & RAFFLE … We’ll show you our plans for the future and listen to your suggestions as well, because, after all, we want you to think of this as your farm too. To bring our future plans to life and to help support your farm and our work, we’ll have a silent auction and raffle.
MAPS & SCHEDULES … A map of the farm and a schedule of events will be provided at the information table at the barn. Tours and demonstrations will be scheduled throughout the day and repeated either once or twice. The children’s activities will be available throughout the day. The silent auction and raffle winners will be announced at 6:00 PM, and you do not need to be present to win.
Come to the farm on Saturday, 29 September 2012, between 10:00 AM and dusk. We’re so looking forward to your visit, introducing ourselves, and getting to know you. Welcome to the Kranz Hill Farm!
