On Saturday, 24 September 2011, Grazing Days is hosting an Open House and Potluck at the farm in Manotick Station. Anyone who is interested is welcome to attend. The event is family friendly and if you know of people who might be interested in getting some Grazing Days Beef this year, please invite them along. If you are on facebook, please RSVP here.
We have some fun things planned for Saturday afternoon / evening. Please feel free to participate in as much or as little as you would like! This open house is child friendly, although some of the activities are more child friendly than others…
15:00 Farm Tour and Pasture Walk – 6191 Mitch Owens Drive
Starting at the Grazing Days farm gate a tour will head through the Grazing Days pastures and soon to be pastures. As part of the tour, you’ll get a chance to see how the cattle get moved to fresh grass every day. If you attended the pasture walk last year, check out what has changed this year.
17:00 Potluck – 6191 Mitch Owens Drive
After the Farm Tour and Pasture Walk we will head back to the starting place for a potluck and good ol’ socializing! If you plan on bringing something in a crock-pot, please remember there is no electricity available at the farm.
19:00 Campfire at the farm – 6191 Mitch Owens Drive
Please join us for some more socializing and warmth around the farm campfire.
