It’s the Chickens in the Road Party on the Farm 2009!
Date and time: Sunday, October 11, 1 pm to 7 pm. This is the tail-end of the Black Walnut Festival weekend here, to coordinate with people who may come into town for that. (Find Black Walnut Festival information here.) If you’re in the area, or will be in the area that weekend, please come!
I’m going to ask everyone to bring something (food or other party item) and that will be arranged after I have a confirmed list. I’ll be asking everyone who brings a dish to post the recipe in the Community Cookbook OR to bring a dish already posted in the Community Cookbook–so we can all go home and make our favorites!
There will be activities/demonstrations going on throughout the party, including corn husk and grapevine crafts, canning, cheesemaking, and milking. (I have a friend who will be bringing a goat that is in milk.) And, of course, the “petting zoo” will be open. (Entry fee: one cookie.)
If you’re interested in attending, please email me with your name plus anyone you plan to bring with you. I’ll ask you to confirm two weeks in advance. Parking, food, and other information will go out to the confirmed list only. Due to the organization and coordination that will be required to pull this off, we can’t have drop-ins.
If you can’t come, don’t worry–we’ll have pictures!
If you are coming, I suggest you bring a rake.
I’m just sayin’.
