Summer Festival at the Genuine Faux Farm

It would help to have a date - mixing a farmer and typing at the end of a day isn't always the best idea:  August 26, Sunday.  Starting 3pm.

Come enjoy an afternoon and evening at the farm. This is a family friendly, no work event. Potluck. We expect to begin the feast around 5pm, but we'll be ready for you starting at 3pm. Goes until everyone leaves OR the farmers fall asleep, then we ask you to quietly leave the premises in an orderly fashion. Bring some outdoor games to share. We'll give tours to the interested.

Details:  Our farm is an organic vegetable and poultry farm with plenty of space for adults to wander and kids to run and play.  Summer Fest is fun, conversation and outdoor relaxation.  We have a few buildings with good roofs, so we hold the event rain (hah!  not this year!) or shine. Tammy will prepare some small sandwich makings and ask people to bring salad, chips or desserts to share.  I supply cups and table service plus water and lemonade, though it might not hurt if you wish to bring your own table service if enough people arrive.  We respectfully ask friends to not bring pets, tobacco products (tobacco is actually really bad in combination with some of our vegetables) or alcohol.  Please do bring families, friends, lawn chairs or blankets, lawn games (no hard balls, just soft to all the little ones are safe), bubbles, etc.  Plan on the temps being both much windier and much cooler on the farm than in town, so sweatshirts are often nice as the sun starts to get lower.

We invite people to begin arriving at 3pm, with serious food eating planned for about 5pm.  If the weather permits we will have a small bonfire to roast marshmallows (but with the dry weather we have had burning bans, so don't count too much on this!) in the evening.  We will host people for as long as they want to stay into the evening.  Sunsets are really lovely here this time of year...  Feel free to come and go as your family's schedule allows.

Directions:  WE are about 25 minutes NW of Waverly:  Take Hwy 63 north (either Bremer Ave/Hwy 3 east to Hwy 63 or 1st St. north past Nestle, right on C 33, left on Hwy 63) and turn right on Hwy 93.  Travel 2 miles and turn left onto Navaho Ave.  Travel 2 miles on the gravel and turn right on 150th Street.  Travel .5 mile and turn left into our driveway.  We are the only farm in that block - we have a large blue Harvestore and shiny red roofs that are good markers.  2345 150th Street, Tripoli, IA  Call if you need help:  319-610-9115 (that's my cell).
