Open Farm Day
Goat Lady Dairy – 12 to 5 pm
Rising Meadow Farm – 11 am to 4 pm
Free Event – Rain Or Shine – No Pets Please
Twice a year we open our doors and invite you to bring family and friends to enjoy a beautiful afternoon on two local farms. Meet the farmers, goats and kids, sheep and lambs. Tour the gardens, taste the cheese, feel the fleece, hear about local food and farming. You can even “throw a pot” with local potters at Goat Lady Dairy. Enjoy live music, sheep dog and shearing demonstrations at Rising Meadow Farm. Come learn with us as we seek to create a sustainable future together. In addition to selling artisan cheese, wool and yarn, there will be a dozen or more other local farmers at the two farms offering pasture raised pork and beef and a wide variety of artisan fiber products.
