Fall Open House Dates – Southern Illinois mums & pumpkin patch
Customers visit the farm to peruse our Southern Illinois mums & pumpkin patch where they pick out fall mums & pumpkins for fall decorating. Things look spectacular on our farm in the fall so we open our doors to the public each year during this time. Visitors also take selfies with the goats, watch the chickens, maybe do some goat yoga…
Yes, you read that right, goat yoga is coming to Southern Illinois! We partner with a local yoga instructors to offer goat yoga during our fall open house events.
“Goat yoga, which is yoga practiced in the presence of — and in tandem with — live goats, is the latest exercise to capture the imaginations and Instagram feeds of Angelenos. Tailor-made for the selfie set, each class lets you do downward dog alongside barnyard goats in all their bleating, adorable glory.” Quote is from this Los Angles Times article
Customers will also find goat milk soaps, farm fresh eggs and seasonal produce for sale during our fall open house days.
Open house days in previous years have been so much fun that we plan to do several dates this year! Customers walked our Southern Illinois mums & pumpkin patch to pick out their favorite colors and styles of mums. They picked out the perfect decorator and edible pumpkins and gourds to pair with fall mums for porch decor. Antique vendors brought some cool porch decorator pieces to sell. Customers snapped photos of the curious goats, they marveled at the unique chicken breeds. It is an all around good time and we are working hard to grow our offerings this year, especially with the addition of goat yoga.
