Make the 1st Annual Farmer’s Harvest Festival Part of Your Weekend Plans

19 Sep

Just wanted to make a reminder to everyone that this Sunday is the First Annual Farmers’ Harvest Festival held at Cottonwood Meadows and sponsored by the farm businesses operating on the land, including Weathervane Farm. the event will run from 12:00 to 5:00. This event is free and open to all ages. The afternoon will start with farm tours and outdoor games at 12:00.

At approximately 1:00, we invite folks to sit down together to celebrate the abundance we’ve enjoyed on this land the last two seasons. The different farm businesses will be providing as much food as we can, and we ask everyone attending the potluck to bring your favorite dish to serve about 6-8 people. Please bring your own plates and table service and serving utensils would be appreciated as well, but we will of course have some here.

Then, around 3:00, we will enjoy live music from The Crane Flies, Matthew Coen and Andrea Earley-Coen’s latest musical project; Americana and acoustic rock with a bassist and drummer. We expect the band to play until 5: 00 or so, and then who knows what other fun might evolve.  Bring your instruments for a possible after 5:00 jam.

For those of you who may not have been to the farm before it is located at 15284 County Rd 350 in Buena Vista. If you can find the stoplight at Main street and 24, you’re almost there. Go north on 24 to Crossman, which is the street that runs between the Super 8 Motel and the Buffalo Bar and Grill (it is also CR 350). Take a left, and go just about a half mile, over Cottonwood Creek the first time, past Big Meadow (a big meadow) on your left. At the end of Big Meadow, take a left into the parking area immediately before crossing the creek a second time. After parking, cross the creek on the road, and you will find the farm on your left. Look for the signs directing you to parking for the event.
