This week's farm news:

First of all, we would like to invite all of you up to the farm for our annual swimming party and potluck picnic. It will be next Sunday, July 31. Come around two or so... Don't fret if you are running "late", just come when you can. Bring a potluck dish to share and we'll spend the day swimming at the creek and enjoying this beautiful farm. Please join us! Directions can be found on our website.

On Wednesday we hosted a bunch of folks (we never did an exact head count but we think there were at least 60 in attendence) from farms around the region for our annual "C-R-A-F-T" (Collaborative Regional Alliance for Farmer Training) event. Even though it was an extremely hot day, everyone seemed to thoroughly enjoy seeing what Bugtussle Farm is all about! The title of our event was "Attempting the Impossible: Creating a Farm, Family, and Future with no off-farm income while paying for the land." This pretty much sums it all up!!!
