Ploughshare Farm hosts two farm festivals annually. Our farm festivals are the best way to come out and experience the farm first hand. Kids and family members are all welcome during these days.
September 29th is the farm festival and (perhaps) pig roast.
Kids and family members are all welcome!!
There will be working through out the day from 10 am onward. Snacks will be served to the hungry workers through out the day. Then at around 5:00 or 5:30pm Live music will start. Also, share members may pick a Jack o lantern (one pumpkin per share)
This is a full day event. Early on in the day there will be a work party. In previous years, members have worked together to help take up mulch, plant garlic, and put the fields to bed for the winter. There will be a potluck lunch served for the hungry workers throughout the day (everyone who comes is encouraged to bring a dish to share and we will also have a large pot of stew or chili available).
Camping is available here at the farm and we also have 4 rooms with beds available in our Yurt style tent and have bathroom and kitchen available (email soon to reserve). If you have no interest in getting your hands dirty, come anyway and enjoy the music and the fellowship. The best way to help make this event a success is to just show up. This event is open to the public so please help spread the word (i.e.—friends, neighbors, church bulletins, and local news) Also, folks coming from the cities may want to carpool up to save on fuel.
