Somehow winter seems to be slipping away and a true sense of urgency has entered our lives. There's classes to be scheduled, the Farm To Table Dinner to plan, speaking engagements to finalize, new products, plants, and varieties to market and plan for and updates and maintenance to think about.
We're really excited to be looking forward to our 5th Farm to Table Dinner on the farm and all totaled we will have put on 9 dinners! Each year it is a treasure hunt to figure out the beverages and dishes we can serve to showcase all of the great agricultural products in our state and region. This year's dinner will be held August 8th and tickets should go on sale in June. Be sure to watch our Facebook page and this website for actual ticket sales date because as you know, they sell out really, really, fast!
We've also been having some fun with a few surprises for the Heart of America Wellness Fair to be held at Dakota Farms in Rugby on March 23rd. This will be a VERY FUN event - and if you play along with our game your name will be entered into a drawing for your very own private 'cooking with herbs' class here at the farm for you and some of your friends! Please come out and play with us for a chance to win!
Our schedule is also filling up with speaking engagements in Manitoba, Grand Forks, and at the International Peace Gardens. Whew! What a summer it will be.
The most fun (and maybe the most stress) comes from planning new events and products here at the farm. It's a little early to announce them but believe me - it's going to be FUN! As soon as we can finalize the plans, we'll be sure to include you in the plans.
Stop by this summer to check out our youngest (Mable, seen below) and Millie (our Employee of the Month) and say hello to the gardendwellers RANCH sheep that may still be hanging around when the weather gets good. We'd love to see you!
