Party on the Farm 2011 Registration Opens!


The CITR Party on the Farm 2011 is set for Sunday, September 4, 1 p.m. to 7 p.m. The party will take place at Stringtown Rising Farm in Roane County, West Virginia. Registration opens today!

If you’re new and don’t know what I’m talking about, this will be our fourth year to open our farm in a free event with food, fun, food, demonstrations, food, fun, and more food. (Did I mention the food?) We’ve had registration in the past through email, but this year registration is through an online form. Registration is free, but please don’t register unless you intend to come. (If you register then find later that something has come up, please use the cancellation page as a courtesy.) It’s important for us to have an accurate head count.

The party is a potluck event, but this year we will be providing the main dish as a number of attendees this year will also be CITR Retreat attendees who are unable to bring a dish. We will ask those of you who are not retreat attendees to bring an appetizer, side, bread, or dessert. (The form provides a chance to mark your preferences on what to bring.) The Party on the Farm on the heels of the retreat is a bonus for retreat attendees–if you want to roll it all in together, check out the CITR Retreat 2011 page.

Party on the Farm registration is for the party ONLY. Retreat attendees must also register if they plan to attend the party. (Heads up, retreat attendees!) Final details and information will only be sent to registered party attendees.

We have a number of demonstrations in the works, and you are welcome to provide a demonstration if you’re interested! See the Party on the Farm registration form for more details.

So, c’mon! Milk Beulah Petunia. Give Clover a cookie. See Poky’s baby. (What? She hasn’t had a baby yet, but I’m pretty sure it’s coming–sometime soon!) Watch the lambs frolic and pet the Giant Puppy. Sign up for door prizes. Then eat, eat some more, enjoy the demonstrations, then finish eating! We’re having a party. Are you coming? (Children are welcome and encouraged!)


Hurry, they’re eating without you!

The Slanted Little House

"It was a cold wintry day when I brought my children to live in rural West Virginia. The farmhouse was one hundred years old, there was already snow on the ground, and the heat was sparse-—as was the insulation. The floors weren’t even, either. My then-twelve-year-old son walked in the door and said, “You’ve brought us to this slanted little house to die." Keep reading our story....
