Sustainable Saturday:  Saturday July 26 2014

A tour of Weatherbury Farm's mill, a potluck dinner and folk music jam are scheduled for Saturday July 26th. Hope to see you on the farm!

Here's the day's schedule:

2:00 -- 3:30:  Flour pickup. Check out our price list and place your orders by July 19th. 

3:30 -- 5:30:  Mill tour.  Meet in the livery hall for a brief introduction to Weatherbury's grains and then tour the mill.

5:30:  Potluck dinner.  Please bring a dish to share. Make it with a Weatherbury product for a complimentary bag of cornmeal!

Following dinner, there will a folk music jam. Bring your instrument(s), voice, music and a sense of fun.

Not sure, where we're located? Check out our on-line directions ! 

Potluck Dinners and Jams  are held throughout the year.  To get an early heads up on the next jam,  sign up for our folk music newsletter (above). (We also have a farm vacation and grass fed meats letter if you are interested.)

Jams are folks playing and folks singing and folks listening (not to mention lots of great food!).  An attendee at our November '07 Jam called it a community sing-along!

Sign up for our newsletter (above) to keep up to date on scheduled jams and workshops.

 

Overnight Farm Experience
Weatherbury Farm offers an overnight experience on select Friday and Saturday nights where families can learn about farming and life on the farm.  On Saturday and Sunday mornings after breakfast, guests are invited to help Farmer Dale with chores.  After chores families can enjoy life on the farm.  Many families have fun watching (from a distance, of course) Farmer Dale & Farmer Nigel at work in the fields. Or sometimes (more often than we like), they may be working on keeping our farm equipment in good running order.  Some families like to get their hands dirty and help Marcy weed the garden! Some families  choose to also visit nearby attractions during their stay. Most families, however, enjoy the opportunity to kick back and relax on the farm and enjoy life in the slow lane.

A visit to Weatherbury Farm, with the exception of morning chores is a time for families to enjoy unstructured time together enjoying life on the farm. There are a wealth of articles about giving children unstructured time to just enjoy being a kid.  It's a theory we subscribe to at Weatherbury Farm.  "The Joys of Doing Nothing" is an interesting read.
 

Sheep Fest:   2001 - 2005
Pictures from our four years of Sheep Fest  are on-line. Sheep Fest celebrated the heritage of Sheep in southwestern Pennsylvania. There were sheep (of course), demonstrations and hands-on opportunities of fiber arts (including spinning, weaving, bobbin lace and knitting) and perhaps the most beautiful crafts you have ever seen!

We regret that Sheep Fest will not be held in 2013.

However, we do have many sheep roaming the farm -- come for  an overnight farm vacation!
