Good afternoon {{ subscriber.first_name }},

How's everybody enjoying this beautiful Fall weather? It's absolutely gorgeous out here on the farm!

So today we will recap our "2022 Fun Day On The Farm" with everyone. This was our on farm event we held Saturday 9/10, here at Dutch Meadows. It was a beautiful day to have the event and we hope for those of you that were able to be here, enjoyed your day as much as we did!

We welcomed over 450 guests on our farm that day, Wow! :) 

Below I will give everyone a snapshot of the event in photos that highlight some of the favorites for that day!

It should give you a picture of what we had going on here at the farm on this fun day of learning and meeting your farmers in person. And get you thinking about next years event, eh? :)

Here is the main tent where lunch was served and presentations were given.

Parking in the pastures on the farm out in the countryside!

Barrel train rides for the children!

Horse and wagon rides for everyone! What a great way to tour our farm!

Home made ice cream using all organic ingredients with the old fashioned ice cream maker in the background! Ice cream was made on site that day! :)

The petting zoo, a huge hit with children and adults alike! :)

Bounce houses in the background and pony rides for the children!

So to wrap it up here, the highlight of the day for me was meeting our wonderful customers in person, serving a healthy lunch, and just helping everyone have a great day out on the farm! It filled my heart to be able to share a REAL foods meal with so many REAL food lovers. :)

We served a healthy lunch (loaded), including homemade Apple Pie, Homemade Ice Cream, and plenty of refreshments and drinks throughout the day!

There was a handful of our vendors here sampling and selling their product that day as well! :) Plus we had a few unannounced farm store specials for a chance to stock your freezer...

Now we know that this event was not in the most perfect way organized but we were glad for any feedback and suggestions which some of you did give! This helps us to plan better for next year and hopefully make your experience out on the farm more enjoyable than ever! :)

Our farm store was probably our weakest link that day as we can only fit so much products on the shelves and so much people in the store!

But you know what? I've got news for you! We are actually in the early stages of designing/building a larger farm store with plenty of parking, more products on display, hopefully better service, and many other great improvements! :) Stay tuned, it may take a while for this to fall together! :)

That's all for now, and please feel free to reply to this email with any more comments, questions, or concerns that you may have, as this is always the fun part of sending out a newsletter! :)

What Is "Seasonal Winter" Chicken?

So let’s think about seasonal chicken… As we all know to raise pastured chicken there is a seasonal time frame that we can consider our chicken to be truly pastured and that is May through October.
