On-Farm Workshops

We have been offering workshops/classes through our local community college and have a couple of upcoming classes.  You can now sign up for the workshop/date here on LocalHarvest through our "online store".  We are offering Shiitake Mushroom Inoculation workshops 1) March 23,2013 from 1:00-5:00pm and 2) April 13,2013 from 1:00-5:00pm.  We will discuss the log yard, trees to use, inoculation (hands-on), care, harvest and more.
We are also offering Gonna Getcha Goat which is a basic introduction to those who are new to goat owning.  We will discuss breeds, uses of goats, maintenance, expense and more.  We will  offer these on 1) March 30,2013 from 1:00-4:00 and 2) April 20,2013.  These workshops will be held here on a working farm.  We have just started our kidding season for 2013 so, there will be baby goats to play with!


On-Farm Goat Auction/Sale (many are young does)

We will have an on-farm goat auction/sale on May 29th from 8:00-10:00am.  We need to decrease our Nubian/Boer mix herd so we can increase our Saanen herd.  We are an Animal Welfare Approved farm and our goats are on a rotational grazing/FAMACHA "deworming" program.  We have at least 4 does between the ages of 1 and 3 years old (3 are breeding age), we have several wethers that would make great pets (starting at $25.00), and we have a beautiful 3 year old proven 50/50 (Nubian/Boer) buck going for $100.00.

We are also operating our On-Farm stand during this time until 7:00pm.  We have plenty of Amish Deer Tongue lettuce (Ark of Taste/Slow Food), Romaine (Freckles) and Looseleaf (Prizehead) lettuce available.  We also have radishes, sage, chives and mint.  We have potted Flame Azalea, Black Cohosh, Sweet Shrub and tomato plants (Yellow Israel and Sunbrite).  We also have some Native-American and Mountain crafts.

See our listing for directions and/or give us a call or e-mail.

Hope to see you there!!
