Indigo Farms update Sept.3

Posted 9/3/2017 5:22pm by Sam Bellamy.

Yes, we will be open Labor Day.   The fall season looks like a wobbly legged new born foal. You are amazed to see it but wonder what it will mature into. I smile at the pumpkins that really look good right now. The bean crop that is progressing well. Special thanks to Jim Hill for his advice on repairing the planter.

   At the same time I realize that I don’t have the man power to make Farm Heritage Day and Pumpkin Day what they have been. Because of that, I plan to have four Saturdays of PYO pumpkins. We will miss the full impact of the event days although we will put as much into what we do as we can. We should be able to do night time hay rides by reservations. We want people to experience the real farm wonder of fall so we will focus on less but try to make the experience as good as we can.  

  Meanwhile we need help with tours and those Saturdays for PYO pumpkins. If you are interested or know of someone who may be contact us. Most people who help with the school tours actually enjoy the time. The schedule is week day mornings depending on the tours that are scheduled. You need not lock yourself into every day. Often it works well to have a number of people who can be flexible and work when it is most needed. I care about the tours and want people to learn about the importance of farms and food. The motivation behind our fall activities is to connect people with the good in farm life. With farm labor getting harder and harder to find and missing family members to help it is very difficult to cover all the ground that needs to be covered. Thank you for your understanding and support.
