Wasn't Saturday just gorgeous?! We really couldn't have asked for a more perfect day for our Spring Open Farm.
I love this farm. And being able to open our farm to our friends and neighbors is one the highlights of my year, to be sure. The barn was bustling and the fields were full -- the farm was just so full of life. What a great way to usher in the spring!
We owe a few folks some appreciation. Garrett was a great shuttle driver. He shuttled people from our flat field where they parked up to the barn area and back. John had been just a touch nervous about the whole parking situation, so this helped tremendously.
Also, thanks to Karen and Girl 1 who manned the sales counter. They did an amazing job. (Sidenote: Those of you who love Live Well should thank Karen, too. I'd been phasing out that scent, but Karen informed me that several customers were asking about it. Then, when I tried to offer her payment for all her hard work at the booth, she told me that she'd like some more Live Well as her payment. Well played, Karen. Well played. As our biggest Brood Farm volunteer, there's no way I can say "no" to that. So, all Live Well lovers come out on top here! I plan to make a new batch this week.)
Though they'd been in a more distant field, we brought the hens up closer to the barn. Positioned between the farmhouse and the soccer field, they were some of the stars of the show.
Thank you, thank you to all the visitors who've shared your photos with me. To see others delight in our critters is such a joy! Here are some more visitor submitted photos.
Thank you to everyone who came out to welcome spring with us!
