A Day on the Farm

Yesterday I got to spend part of the day at Farm Fest at Rising Meadow Farm. I had been to this farm in the spring for sheep shearing day and got an email a couple of weeks ago about their fall festival.

There were alpacas visiting from a nearby farm.
We got to see someone spinning angora right off the bunny. Yes, that pile of fluff in her lap is a live bunny. Apparently when they are shedding their coat, spinning right off of them is the thing to do…….
There were approximately 30 vendors. Fiber, soaps, yarns, books, hand knitted items, homemade coconut cake (can I just say YUM!) there was lots of variety.
I’m really glad I went. If you have a local farm nearby, be sure to get on their mailing list so you don’t miss out on the fun!
