Events happening at each farm on September 25th

They have chicks hatching on the day of the crawl!
From 10am - 11am we have pancakes served with our own maple syrup.
From 12:30 until 1:30 we have a ratatouille made with our in-season produce.
At 11am, 1pm, and 3pm, come dig up potatoes with Charles. Take a potato you dug yourself home!
And of course, our market is open with garlic, fall produce, and maple syrup!
LICKETY SPIT FIBRE FARM
Guests to our farm will get the opportunity to have guided tours to meet the sheep and alpacas, as well as to see swans, geese, ducks, and a horse. There will be demonstrations of fibre preparation and dyeing, spinning, weaving, and needle felting. There will be plenty of yarn dyeing taking place - September is an amazing time for harvesting plants to use for dyeing. We will also be working with our sheep shearer to hold some shearing demonstrations!
Our farm store will be open with a selection of wool and alpaca-related goods such as yarn, roving, socks, soaps, and finished goods, as well as the garlic that we grow.
MANORUN ORGANIC FARM
Farmer Chris will be leading wagon rides around their restorative agriculture Oak Savannah field with a brief overview of the Oak Savannah growing system. You can also go for a stroll around their property to see their Tamworth pigs who love crunching on nuts, the hens, and horses. Their ponies Coconut & Kashmir will be out for grooming too!
Farmer Keshia, along with her partner Brewer Zach, will be doing apple-pressing demos throughout the day. Come for some cider samples and stay to learn about their budding cider business to be started at Manorun.
Vanh Kalong, the owner of My Thai and Pintoh Cuisine, will be serving up some Thai food for lunch with ingredients sourced right from the farm. So bring some chairs or a picnic blanket! Some tables will also be set up.
Carly, the owner of The Sage Soap Company, is back with her line of plant-based handmade bath and skin products. A local maker who sources local ingredients where possible!
