Here is your opportunity to visit three working farms in Livingston County, all of which are about 35 to 45 minutes south of the intersection of I-80 and I-55. The 5th Annual Livingston County Farm Crawl will be held 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, August 20, and Sunday, August 21, 2016. Check back often for updates or subscribe to get new posts by email!
What was the first thing you did, garden or livestock, and why?
Garden, but with moving in April, homeschooling and trying to unpack, and having lots of friends and family visiting . . . we had such healthy weeds that I created a maze for my 5 year old to go through. When we burned the "forest" of weeds, the volunteer fire department came out.
What are you most looking forward to sharing on the farm crawl?
The great fresh veggies that we have to offer and a visit with the animals, chickens and turkeys that provide fresh eggs and alpacas that provide wonderful fleece and beautiful personalities.
What do visitors tend to enjoy the most on your farm?
The open space and country quiet, the "slow it down" mode.
What are your plans for the future?
Keep growing healthy fresh veggies and hopefully canning, drying and freezing fruit and vegetables grown on our farm.
