SPRING IS COMING!
Get out and enjoy a local, organic farm at Blue Sky Organic Farms, Sunday, February 25th.
We are happy to share our farm with you by hosting an Open Farm Day on Sunday, February 25th from 12:00pm until 3:00pm.
The opportunity to witness agriculture in action is a rarity nowadays. To experience where our food is grown rather than to watch it arrive at supermarkets is the point of our Open Farm Day.
Life on a working farm helps to open people’s eyes to the wonders and possibilities of the natural world and their own potential. Our mission is to expose people to where their food comes from and to educate them about the ecology of a diversified small farm. As a part of our Open Farm Day, we will host tours of our farm. On our tours, we teach the basics of caring for farm animals, organic gardening, and experience the satisfaction of working together to produce good food.
Our Open Farm Day also includes activities for the children. Through creative play and exploration, children develop a connection with the land and an appreciation for growing their own food. Children learn by example; we want them to be inspired by the farm to support local agriculture and choose a healthy lifestyle.
At Blue Sky we are committed to growing the best produce around, thus providing beautifully superior, high nutrient content foods for your family’s table. During our event we will have a full line of produce available for purchase. In response to the high demand at the previous Farm Day event we expanded your shopping experience to include 2 locations.
Come learn about our CSA program. A CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) program is a mutually beneficial way for local farmers and community members to help one another. The community benefits from the most local and naturally produced (therefore freshest longest lasting) food for their family’s table. The member also gets the piece of mind that comes with a guaranteed share of the produce. In our case, this means a guaranteed share of the best produce around…and it’s certified organic! It just doesn’t get better than this.
Open Farm Day starts at 12 noon and runs until 3:00pm. Our first tour is scheduled for 12:45 and will concentrate on the animals at our farm. Our second tour is scheduled to begin at 2:00pm and will concentrate on our organic farming processes.
Our kitchen will be open for the event serving delicious items prepared with ingredients from our fields.
So bring your appetite for food and knowledge and enjoy your day with us. See you on February 25th!
