More planned for this year's Farm Crawl

In addition to expanding the Farm Crawl to two days this year, there will also be more demonstrations at the various farms. Although the schedule has not yet been finalized, here are some of the things visitors can expect at this year's farms.

At the Farmer in Odell, visitors can see how to milk a goat, grind your own flour, make bread, and make soap.

At Antiquity Oaks, there will be goat milking, mozzarella making, solar oven cooking, soapmaking, and scything (cutting grass hay with a long blade).

Visitors to Cherokee Winds will learn about goat milking, needle felting, making felted soap, soapmaking, and beekeeping.

M2A Farm has a new resident -- Olivia the emu -- that visitors will be able to see, and there will also be spinning demonstrations.

There will again be a corn maze at Eden's Harvest Farm for a $3 fee, and there will be lunch available as a fundraiser.
