TURTLE DAY POSTPONED

Winterpast Farm was looking forward to the visit of The Traveling Tortoise with lots of special turtle friends this Friday. However, the infant son of the owner was bitten by a copperhead this morning and is in the hospital (doing well) so the event is postponed. The farm will be open as usual 9-6 on friday. We will announce a new date soon.

WINTERPAST INVITED TO BE PART OF FARM TOUR IN SEPTEMBER

SAVE THE DATE!
Winterpast Farm will join 27 other farms the weekend of September 20/21 for the Carolina Farm Stewardship Association’s 9th annual Eastern Triangle Farm Tour. Farmer Mary will donate two days of the farm and visitors will pay per carload to the Stewardship Association to
visit as many of the farms as they like. Winterpast may have 500 visitors each day! Last year we were very busy both days of the tour!

Lots of volunteers will be helping prepare the farm and will be on site to help with the large number of visitors expected those days. Farmer Mary always appreciates good volunteers. If you have some free time before the tour or the day(s) of the tour and want to help, please let her know.

Saturday, Sept 20 from 1-5 and Sunday, Sept 21from 1-5 are the tour days/hours.
See the Carolina Farm Stewardship Association website for more info
