This Saturday, May 10th, is potluck time at Millsap Farm.
We are celebrating the end of Winter and beginning of the main growing season with a potluck and open house at Millsap Farm, 6593 North Emu Lane Springfield.
When: Saturday, May 10th. We’ll start gathering around 5:00, eat around 5:30pm, and tour the farm starting at about 6, with hay rides anytime from 6:15 on.
We will provide water, iced tea, a bonfire, and paper goods, along with farm tours and hay rides.
You bring; a potluck dish (enough for your group plus enough to share with 6-8 others), chairs (we have some, but not enough for everyone), Jackets (it’s looking like a nice cool evening), beer or wine if you want, musical instruments if you are so inclined, kids, and any friends who want to come have a relaxing evening on the farm.
What to expect; we enjoy having everyone out to the farm to share the beauty of this place, and to provide a relaxing, family friendly, fun evening. The event is open to everyone, so feel free to bring friends, family, or anyone else who would enjoy spending the evening on the farm. If you’re a CSA member, there is an opportunity to learn more about what to expect for the summer season, to pay on your balance if you’ve got one, and sign up for your workshare. Everyone typically enjoys the food and drink, meeting other people with an interest in local agriculture, and the chance to see what’s new on the farm. You’re welcome to stay as late as you want, and we’ll feed the fire as long as there are people around it.
In the event of very wet weather, we will post a notice on our blog, and send out an e-mail to let everyone know rain plans. That said, we have potlucked in some pretty ominous weather before, and have only been rained out once in 6 years of twice a year open house/potlucks.
We look forward to seeing you all this weekend. Feel free to call or e-mail with questions, 839-0847.
