In this workshop, we will guide you step-by-step through the hand knitting process to create a super cozy, one-of-a-kind blanket. Make one for you or one as a gift! The blanket requires no needles or knitting experience! The registration fee is $90.00 and includes all materials and instruction. You will receive enough chunky chenille yarn to make an (approximately) 40" x 50" blanket. The finished size may vary depending on your individual hand-knitting process. This is an advanced project and intended for guests aged 15 and up.
PLEASE NOTE: You will be able to choose your yarn colors when you arrive for your workshop. We offer a selection of neutral colors (i.e gray, cream, and tan) along with a few other color choices. Colors may be limited and are available on a first come, first serve basis.

We're excited to announce our Fall Farm Fest for 2021! We are now accepting vendors for this event on Saturday, October 16, 2021. We have had a farm fest three times since October 2020 and the first event had about 700 visitors in fall of 2020 and about 400-450 in the spring of 2021. We have added the butterfly house in 2021 as an additional feature at the farm. As part of this event, we will have many activities to encourage people to come out to the farm to support small businesses like yours and enjoy a day on the farm.
Please pay for your booth online.

Join us as Jennifer with Branch and Bloom returns to the farm on Sunday, October 24 for these fantastic succulent pumpkin pots! These adorable ceramic pumpkins are made by a local artist and then filled with your choice of succulents for a beautiful fall table display or as an addition to your houseplant collection.
Jenn will teach us how to plant and care for succulents, including the best soil types to use, how to water, and then find out what to do with them during the different seasons. We will also learn how to make succulent babies! You will leave knowing how to propagate your new succulents. This is a fun and informative make-and-take class.
