Farm Day this Saturday

We would like to invite everybody to our annual Farm Day.  Come see our pigs roaming in the field, cattle grazing in the distance, chickens out scratching, goats climbing around, and turkeys showing off.  We will be grilling up our new line of preservative free bratwursts for lunch. 
When: Saturday April 14th from noon to 4pm.

              175 E. Sharp Rd
              Vernon, UT 84080

What:  Come get a tour of the farm, ask us questions, watch the animals, get a bite to eat, and enjoy the fresh air.
Who: Anybody who would like to come is welcome.  Feel free to share this invite with family, friends, neighbors, and coworkers.

Lunch: We will be grilling up our new line of preservative free Bratwursts for $2 each.  Add a bag of chips and a bottled water or can of soda for $1.  Our new bratwurst flavors include: Jalapeno w/Monterrey Jack Cheese, Sundried Tomato w/Basil, and German Bratwurst.

You are also welcome to bring a lunch.   

This will be a great time to bring the family to see where food comes from.  We are planning some activities for those wanting to learn more about our farm or simply experience the country life.  This will be an open house, meaning no set schedule.  Folks can come and stay the whole time or just poke their heads in to say hi and see what's going on.  We plan to have baby chicks for kids (and adults) to see and hold.  Of course there will be the pigs to watch playing out in the field.  We will also cook up some samples of pork and beef that people can try.  We will also have a seed planting station for kids who are interested in learning a little bit about gardening. 

For those who would like to make a full day of their trip to Vernon, we can recommend some beautiful canyons to hike.  There are lots of trails to bike on and good places to take four wheelers and dirt bikes.  We also have the Vernon Reservoir just ten minutes from our farm that usually has good fishing.  There are also several historical sites like the Pony Express Trail markers that are fun to see. Hollie and I will also be available to talk and answer questions.

Like last year, we ask that those who have children come with the understanding that this is a working farm.  There is barbed wire, machinery, and live animals that can all cause harm to unattended children.  If it is rainy it may be muddy, if it is windy it may be dusty, if it is sunny there is sunburn, so please come prepared for the elements.  Our hope is that everybody has a safe and enjoyable time.  We felt last year was a huge success as everybody seemed to have a good time.  Feel free to invite coworkers, neighbors, and family along.  For those interested in purchasing meats from our farm, we will be taking orders.  However, please understand that there is absolutely no obligation.  We love what we do and find joy in sharing this with others.
Come enjoy a break in the country.
