Annual Open Farm Party

Join us on Sunday, May 25th for our second annual Open Farm Party to kick off the season! We’re looking to get a crowd of our favorite people and new friends up to the farm to see what’s happening around the farm, share a delicious meal, and have a relaxing evening around a bonfire. All are welcome:  CSA members, family, friends, curious neighbors, eaters, and growers.

Come at 4:00 for a tour of the farm including the fields, the greenhouse, our brand-new hoop house, and the barn. The newest members of the Piney Mountain family are eager to meet you, including a flock of chickens, four baby goats, and our new Farmer-In-Training, Audrey.

Dinner at 5:00, potluck style. Bring a dish to share and a place setting for yourself. The farm will provide beverages and some fresh greens from the fields. We’ll eat on the lawn next to the big red barn, like a big ol’ family picnic!

Piney Mountain Orchard’s Annual Member Meeting will be held at 6:30 to go over CSA details like pick-up information, tips on what to do with your share, the extra benefits of being a member, and a discussion on future events for this season.

After dinner activities could include: farm tour (for those slackers who missed the first one), a stroll through the beautiful Michaux State Forest, and any games we can dream up. Wanna get your hands in the dirt and feel like a farmer? We’ll have a job that everyone can help out with.

As it gets dark, we’ll get a big bonfire going to gather around and continue enjoying each others company. If you’re musically inclined, please bring an instrument and share your talents (maybe Farmer Megan will play us a banjo tune)!

Hope to see you there- bring your friends!
