Arranging the bash: Final preps

Join us this Saturday, August 3. Please drop in if you can fit it into your schedule, even at the last minute! Just call or email the farm by Saturday. If you can bring a bag or two of ice, it would be appreciated. We've got a new bonfire pit and even some new trails to walk along. The weather looks good, so far, but just in case, we're building an ark.

Visit the "Garden of Eden" and the brand new vineyard.
Inspect the recently planted hardwood forest.
Admire dad's new custom work bench in the barn.
