4th Annual Farm Day 2013

A Peaceful Day in the Country 

We would like to invite you to our 4th 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.  Admission is free!  We will be cooking up our pulled pork sandwiches and bratwursts for those who would like to eat lunch.   Please help us make this day successful by sharing this email with others!

When: Saturday June 8, 2013 from noon to 4pm.

Where: Christiansen's Family Farm
              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.

Lunch: We will be offering smoked/pulled pork sandwiches for $3 each and our preservative free Bratwursts for $2 each.  Add a bag of chips and a bottled water for $1.  Our bratwurst flavors include: Jalapeno w/Monterrey Jack Cheese, Sundried Tomato w/Basil, and German Bratwurst.
Sno Shack of American Fork will be there serving up snow cones to help keep us cool!  $1 each!

You are also welcome to bring a lunch and have a picnic.   

This will be a great time to bring the family to see where food comes from.   We have baby goats that can be petted, and baby chicks for kids (and adults) to see and hold.  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.  Of course there will be the pigs to watch playing out in the field.  We will also be offering hay rides pulled by the tractor.

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.  It is free fishing day so no license is required! 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.

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.

Sincerely,
The Christiansen Family
