The Farmhouse Friends girls are inviting you to the farm for our Harvest Gathering
Saturday, September 12th, 2015
I am so excited to announce that my friend Trish, from Two Peas and a Pod, and I are launching a really fun new collaborative event, The Farmhouse Friends.
Trish and I started as “sheep farm friends”. My Dad happens to be one of the Two Peas 4H advisors. Soon enough, Trish and I signed up to co-lead our 4H Cloverbud club that my daughter Campbell, son Parker and her Sprout are members of and we’ve been scheming for awhile now about how to bring our passions together ; arts and crafts, vintage shopping AND farming.
Trish called me up one early evening and said I had an idea. We met at the farm and brainstormed while doing sheep chores. My dad came home and found us still hanging out in the barn late at night still gabbing away while we were sketching, plotting and planning how this perfect retreat would work (as best we could while the new barn kittens kept walking across our notebooks and climbing on us). We think you will have a great time – if you love to craft, eat, be outdoors, enjoy farm living, and shopping that is. To us, that is just the perfect day! And we are so excited to invite you to join us!
We will start our day with coffee and hot cider in the Farmhouse Friends glampor (it’s a work in progress but we love it! We use it for the perfect hang out between shows at our county fair).
Next, we will be joined by the beautiful, talented, and so sweet, Anna Sokol from Art with Anna. Anna is going to lead us in painting a whimsical pumpkin scene that will be perfect for your fall decorating.
We will enjoy a hay wagon ride out to the field where I will share with you my talents in the kitchen. I will be preparing a delicious locally sourced, farm fresh lunch.
When we are filled to the gills with goodness, we will take some time to learn some basic embroidery and start stitching a sweet little cow, like the one in our logo, while we sit near the pond or maybe back up at the house in our outdoor living room.
We will end our day at Georgie Emerson Vintage in historic Canal Winchester for an exclusive shopping opportunity. Polly, the proprietor, curates the most amazing finds in her shop. Just to visit is a wonderful experience.
At Polly’s shop, we will be gifting each farmhouse friend, our brand new subscription box. Filled with local fresh farm food items plus locally crafted accessories and more.
We promise you an amazing day on the farm, plenty of fun and laughter, and farmhouse girls swag to swoon over.
See you at the farm!
