Farm Tour, Wed., June 16, 6-8 PM $30/person

$30.00

Join us this Wednesday, June 16, from 6-8 PM for our third Farm Tour of the season.To allow for a bit of social distancing we are inviting only 25 participants rather than the normal 30. We will have hand sanitizer available and with the new CDC guidelines, masks are OPTIONAL. We’ll gather at the Homeplace built over 150 years ago and hear Roy tell Civil War stories and talk of agricultural practices in the 1800’s.  We’ll see the first of the dahlia blooms and learn what will happen there next. Then on to the hoop house which is in full transition from “cool flowers” to summer annuals including celosias, sunflowers, zinnias, basils, lisianthus, and scabiosa. From there we’ll drive to Aunt Willie’s and the three types of hydrangea in bloom as well as other perennials the woodies all budded up and ready to bloom and  Cost of the tour is $30 which is nonrefundable, and includes lots of history, growing information, and a ball jar bouquet. Bring any questions you have related to farming and we’ll try to provide answers and advice. Bring nippers or scissors if you have them so you can snip a few blooms as you wander. Come ready to learn and hopefully make a friend or two. We love our farm tour groups as we love sharing our farm life with others.

Description

Tour will meet rain or shine so bring an umbrella if rain looks imminent but there are plenty of run down old buildings to duck into if we need to. We’ll begin at the Homeplace, 299 Bruce Doan Rd., Blountville, 37617 which is the driveway on the left just AFTER the hoop house. I’ll try to remember to put balloons on the mailbox.  Pull down the driveway towards the white farmhouse and park anywhere in the grass. Tours generally last about 2 hours but you’re welcome to stay an extra minute to hike up to the cabin if there’s enough daylight. Cost is not refundable but if for some reason you’re unable to join us last minute, you can send someone in your place.
