Event Days in October
Fall is a highlight at Indigo Farms. For many people it is a place where special memories bring smiles and warm thoughts even years after their experience here. The fall event days and other farm activities are made for just such times.
Thank You for being a part of our farm's fall events. We hope you value the time you had even more as the years go by. If you are interested in helping with the event days in 2015 you may contact us to see if there is a way to do so.
Farm Heritage Day (October 3, 2015 10am - 4pm) is our effort to bring together the many new people who move into the area, The many people whose roots are deep in the area together with the generations that have never known our rural heritage. The result is a rare opportunity to learn from one another, to interact with knowledgeable, skilled, and experienced people. The kind of people we have had participating in past years truly makes this day special.
Look for horse drawn demonstrations Exhibits of indigo dyeing ( maybe not this year 2014 indigo shortage), weaving, old tools, artifacts from the 1800's, old tool exhibit, black smithing, and more. The Horry County museum will be running a 1915 vertical hit and miss engine turning a 1920's grist mill. Antique tractors and engines, old farm equipment. Special additions include pony rides, hay rides, pick your own pumpkins, hay maze, corn stalk tepe, lots of photo opportunities and one of the event's most popular attraction - Stockpig Racing! Keep posted for more added details. There is no admission fee, no parking fee and lots to see and do free. Hay rides and pick your own pumpkins do have fees. This year corn shelling has a small fee.
Pumpkin Day October 17 ( 10am - 4:30 pm) is a day focused on farm fun from yesteryear. This year we focus on more pumpkin activities such as pumpkin painting , pick your own pumpkns. Pumpkin Day is the crown jewel of Naspig, the best of Stockpig racing. It is usually the day that determines who will win the championship. With the point system all the races throughout the season count and add up to determine the eventual winner. We are looking forward to some of the favorite games such as stilts, pumpkin archery, corn shelling and other old farm games for all ages. Our hope is that this day could be one of those rare days where families can all have fun together, doing the same things. There is something wonderful that happens when parents can share their youthful side with their own kids. It is great when fathers and mothers come along side their children to "show" them that they can "do" this game or participate like everyone else. It is a great opportunity to laugh, be yourself and count your many blessings. Keep posted for details.
Like Farm Heritage Day there are no fees for admission or parking. Pony rides(?), hay rides($2), pick your pumpkins ( $18 / first large pumpkin plus family hay ride to patch. additional pumpkins sold by size; large $11, mid $8, small $3-4), pumpkin painting( $10), face painting( $ not sure) have fees. With old farm games, pumpkin archery, sack races, stilts, corn shelling, hay maze, little people's village , STOCKpig Racing, you don't need money to have a good time. But bring some money for food and activities with a fee.
Night time hay rides are an opportunity for small groups to have some special time together. Unlike most night time hay rides in the fall the focus is not on a wild scary time. It is in fact intended to be a quiet evening savoring the early evening or night. Tuning in to the wonderful reality that exist but is often ignored. These hay rides and bonfires are great for roasting hot dogs and marsh mellows. They are offered on Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights except on event days. Some nights may not be available.
