Fall Open House Dates
Things really get spectacular on our farm in the fall so we open our doors to the public. You can visit the farm to pick out Southern Illinois grown garden mums & pumpkins that we grew just for your fall decorating. You’ll also be able to 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 are working with a local yoga instructor right now to set dates for some 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
We will also have our soaps, farm fresh eggs and seasonal produce for sale during our open house event days. Last year’s open house date was so much fun that we plan to do several dates this year! Customers got to walk the mum plot and pick out their favorite colors and styles of mums that we grew. They picked out the perfect decorator and edible pumpkins and gourds. The farm animals were a huge part of the farm open house experience also. Customers snapped photos of the curious goats, they marveled at the unique chicken breeds. It was an all around good time and we are working hard to grow our offerings this year, especially with the addition of goat yoga.
