September Saturday

Looks like another beautiful day at The Farm. These mums are starring today, along with great pumpkins that set everything off just right.    Inside the shop, we're in a flurry of activity, getting ready for Open House next weekend!

Nope, Not For Sale

Many of you have noticed the  sign at the end of the driveway and have worriedly asked "Is The Farm for sale??"   Well, we're happy to report The Farm is NOT for sale!      The confusion  is understandable given the placement of the sign.  The property  listed is a house and a couple of acres located just past the giftshop.   So if you're in the market for a new home and want to be neighbors with The Farm, check it out.  In the meantime, The Farm is decked out in all its fall splendor, so stop by to see us soon!

The Pumpkins Are Here!

One of our favorite traditions at The Farm--the decorated pie pumpkin!  Each one is  a little work of art.

Garden Note

Don’t you just love the rich colors of late summer & early fall? The shop is filling up with a bumper crop of flowers, and in the next few days, the colors & shapes of pumpkins, gourds & squash will be nestled in among them. Of course, we will be creating our floral decorated pie pumpkins that so many of you love. Complete with a bleach bath to last from now till past Thanksgiving! Gorgeous!
~ To really get in the Fall mood – we have a few dates open for hayrides
~ We have changed our email address (again) because it was causing confusion with our website. It is now: . (sorry!)
~ Hope you plan on coming out for Petersburg’s Harvestfest on Saturday, Sept 19. This is small town hospitality folks! Parade, food, entertainment – and The Farm will be ready for your visit too!
~ And mark your calendar for Fall Openhouse: Sat, Oct 3, 10-5 and Sun, Oct 4, 1-4.

Our Favorite Pottery

Local potter Rich Zimmerman recently took first place in the pottery division of the On My Own Time art exhibit, sponsored by the Springfield Area Arts Council this summer. And you can find his work right here at The Farm too! These little flower arrangers have been flying out the door. They're just right for showcasing a few blossoms. And check out his cool teapots too. Perfect for brewing up a cup of tea on one of these beautiful fall days.
