It will soon be Thanksgiving Day. November is brings many changes in shorter daylight and cooler weather. We have some good items for the season. A very good selection of winter squashes, pie pumpkins and butternut. The good news for tomato and pepper lovers is we are still picking both here on the farm. Heirloom tomatoes are still coming out of the field. Enjoy this opportunity while you can.

We hope you have a good Thanksgiving everyday.

 The  taste of Fall and the Holiday season is here!! Fresh apple cider with all its rich flavor and full body of natural goodness. Made here at the farm and unpasteurized it stands far above what is available elsewhere.

  The winter squashes are still proving their worth, the butternut is excellent right now. Pie pumpkins and chrenshaws are plentiful. Kobochas, buttercups and hubbards are available as well.

  Pick your pumpkins will be open 10 am to 12 noon Saturday. Stock pig racing will be at 10 and 12:30 or there abouts. The weather should be just right.

   Eat Healthy and live wholeheartly !!

 Pumpkin day ( October 17) starts at 9:00 AM - 4:00 PM and has more costs than Farm Heritage Day because of what the activities are and the added expense of being able to do them. The hay ride ($2), corn shelling , pony rides are the same ( not sure what she charges). Pumpkin painting ( $8-12 depending on size of pumpkin). $18 Pick your own pumpkin ticket gives you and your family one large pumpkin and the hay ride to and back from the field. If you want another pumpkin you pay $10 for large, $8 for next size down, $5 for med, $1 for mini sizes. Some unique and giant size pumpkins are extra. You should be able to distinguish them at the field. This you pay at the field. Old farm games; sack races, stilts, cob throwing, corn cob checkers, pumpkin archery, little kids village ( includes box train, stick horses, little people houses, parents must watch and play with their kids ). There are pig races throughout the day for both days. This is the start of the STOCKPIG Racing series for 2015. You can follow the pigs performance on the website each week. The races are scheduled throughout the day. Pumpkin day is the climax to the series and has more races than any other time. The schedule often varies somewhat but usually rights itself because of the number of races. First race is 10, second race is 11:30, third race is 12:30, fourth race is 1:30, fifth race is 2 :30, sixth race is 3:30. If there is to be a seventh race it will be closer to 4:30. Schedule often gets off so bear with it. Each race has 4 sets of races. Six pigs will compete in the first race followed by three each in the next two races. Then all 6 pigs compete in the final fourth race. The pigs that finish 1st, 2nd, 3rd get 9, 6, 3 points respectively. At the end of the season the pig with the most points wins the championship.

Her name means purple flower. #2 is Neelam. Her name means sapphire. #3 is Drisana. Her name means sunrise. #4 is Ignatia. Her name means like a fire. #5 is Georgiana. Her name means farm girl. #6 is Oriana. Her name means golden.

After Saturday’s races the points race is as follows; Neelam 69; Ignatis 63;Oriana36; Georgiana18; Drisana 18; Ianthe12.

Farm Heritage Day has been called off due to the extreme wet weather. The grounds here are very wet. Next Saturday we will have PYO pumpkins, Hay rides, stock pig racing and the hay maze. Keep posted for more details and schedule. 

   I encourage you to visit the Horry County museum and the folks at Waccamaw tractor club. They have been really good about trying to make the day work despite the weather..
