Join us for the J40 Farm Crawl Saturday, July 22, 2017

A day filled with food, farm tours, wagon rides, local artist, history, wine tasting, hand crafted furniture, and so much fun for the whole family!

Start the day off with a delicious home cooked breakfast at the Amish School, than wander down the road to explore the 8 different participating farms, businesses, and museum along the route

Here at Bloom and Bark Farm you can explore our gardens and greenhouses, see how a hand-crafted clay oven bakes delicious artisan breads, sample fresh produce and bread with a cold glass of mint water.  Tour our new Glass Blowing Studio and watch demonstrations by artist Tim Blair.

We have been cutting trees and stripping bark for the Hobbit House.  We have the wall uprights in place and hope to have the roof supports up before the Crawl.  Progress is slow but steady on this awesome structure.

The Village Folks School will be set up on Bloom and Bark Farm with several artists on hand demonstrating and selling their art.  Along with providing information about their classes.

Crane Winery will be sampling their delicious sweet wines at Bloom and Bark Farm.

You will also have the opportunity to explore Lengacher’s Greenhouse, Yoder’s Indian Creek Furniture, Koldt Barn, Troy Academy, Pittsburg General Store and Milton Creamery.

The J40 Farm Crawl is a fabulous opportunity to share summer family fun along Iowa’s Historic Hills Scenic Byway and celebrate the rural local businesses and farms that add vibrancy to the Iowa landscape.

Bunnies are eating away all the broccoli and cauliflower plants so we called in reinforcements.  Frank and Earl are on duty 24/7.  Wow what a team.  Let’s hope their presence is enough to scare away those rascally rabbits.
