Dog Days Bloom Festival

Dog Days Spring Bloom Festival ~ May 2 & 3, 2015

Open 10am-5pm $10/child & $12/adult  Dogs are Free!

This weekend the farm goes to the dogs! We have moved this event from the hottest "Dog Days" of the Summer to the cooler spring so your family can enjoy the spring bloom season and a good romp on the farm with your family's canine companions! Bring the whole family for a romp in the play area and a wagon ride to see the orchards and farm in bloom. We will have an impressive dog agility course, Doggie Olympic Games, and demonstrations that will keep tails a-waggin'! Bring your retriever’s favorite item to enjoy a dip in the pond. The first hundred pups to visit the farm will receive a doggie bag of goodies.

Doggie Business:  All canine companions are asked to bring their owners on a leash and sport their finest rabies certification tag or have proof with them. Canine drinking water is available from our farm pump, so bring a bowl to fill to keep Fido hydrated. Please help make the day excellent for all our guests by cleaning up after your dog in all locations on the farm.  We are happy to provide scooping bags.

Schedule Both Saturday & Sunday:

11am-3pm  Agility Course and Education with Sit, Stay, Training

Time TBD: Educational Session with Dr. Suzy Cooke of Vet Wagon

 

The Farm Market will be offering seasonal fresh produce, jams & jellies, local meats, baked goods. This weekend we will be featuring strawberry slushies and strawberry pies.

The Roosteraunt will be open 10am-3pm and will feature our "Big Dog" hot dogs with all the fixings, hand-dipped ice cream, all-beef burgers, BBQ sandwiches with classic coleslaw, kettle corn, baked goods including our infamous cider donuts.  

Don’t forget to visit our 5 acre play area!  Our 2800 sq ft Pumpkin Jumpin’ Pillow, Double Barrel 60-foot slides, pedal cart track, and rope swings will make your heart race! You can become a Maze Master by challenging each of our 4 mazes. See who can climb up the Rubber Ridge tractor tire mountain the fastest or romp in our Corn Bin.
