Open Farm Day 2011

Open Farm Day 2011

 

Open Farm Day 2011 is a wholesome family adventure that offers a hayride of fun. On Sunday, July 24, farms throughout all 16 counties will open their gates to offer the public an opportunity to learn about the business of agriculture.

Open Farm Day gives you and your family the chance to visit local farms throughout the state.  Visiting hours are generally from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Meat Birds are HERE!

Our meat birds have arrived!  There are 45 total and they are Freedom Ranger chicks from the Freedom Ranger Hatchery.  CLICK HERE for a link to the hatchery!  This particular breed is a little different from the typical Cornish Cross meat bird that most people raise.  The Freedom Ranger is a slower growing bird that is more suitable to foraging on pasture.  Just to give you an idea a Cornish Cross bird is normally raised in a broiler house with limited access to sun and grass and will be ready to slaughter in 8 weeks.  Our birds will be placed outside in a mobile coop that is open to the ground.  I will move it every day to fresh pasture so the birds have access to fresh grass and bugs.  This will reduce how much feed they consume plus it allows them to do what chickens love to do: scratch, flap, eat, take dust baths, and preen in the sun!  More to come!

The Music Man Starring Peter Scolari to Open at the Ogunquit Playhouse July 20th!

 

There’s Trouble in River City… Yes, the critically acclaimed Broadway classic, The Music Man marches onto the Ogunquit Playhouse stage July 20 through August 20. Starring Emmy Award winner Peter Scolari as Harold Hill, Meredith Willson’s all-American favorite follows the fast-talking traveling salesman as he cons the people of River City, Iowa into buying instruments and uniforms for a town band he vows to organize – this despite the fact he doesn’t know a trombone from a treble clef!
