Return to the Basics on a Family Farm




The Community Alliance For Responsible Eco-farming (CARE) will present the Seventh Annual Family Days on the Farm from 4 to 8 p.m., July 27, and 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., July 28, at Green Hills Farm owned by John and Annie Esh.

Highlights include educational seminars, homemakers advice, farmstead ideas, children's activities, healthy baking, vegetable growing and more. After a Friday night keynote address, Saturday will provide more than 30 workshops, panel discussions and keynotes about homemaking, gardening, farmsteading, human health and nutrition and horses, as well as pasture and field walks, children's activities, a petting zoo and a corn box (like a sandbox, but filled with you know…corn).

CARE endeavors to provide an educational basis that promotes down-to-earth ways to bring forth nutrient-dense food for homesteaders and farmers alike, while supporting sustainable and simpler lifestyles that promote cohesive, economical and healthy rural living skills, enabling future generations to farm with a positive attitude and a strengthened motivation

Admission is by donation. Location: 243 Summit Hill Rd., Quarryville. For more information, call 717-925-0503 or email Grandmareiff7@gmail.com.
