This Saturday, May 11, from 12-3 p.m., Copper Moose Farm will open its doors to members of the community. It’s the only time of year when the public is invited to visit and explore the inner workings of the farm.
If you didn’t even realize that we had such an agricultural gem in our backyard, it’s time to check it out! On three acres of land, Copper Moose Farm grows vegetables, organically and biodynamically, as well as cut flowers.
During the spring and summer months, they sell produce, flowers and locally made food products at the Farm Stand, located at 1285 Old Ranch Road. They also offer a CSA (community supported agriculture) program, although it’s sold out already for this year! (Must be good!)
During Saturday’s special (and free!) event, guests can chat with the farmers, meet the beekeeper and learn more about Copper Moose Farm’s techniques — what’s worked, what hasn’t worked, what they struggle with and what they nail every year. (Find more details on the Facebook event page HERE.)
Many of Copper Moose’s community food partners will also be onsite selling their delicious creations, including lunch from Savoury Kitchen, soft cheese from Park City Creamery, drinks from Mamachari Kombucha, and sweet treats from Auntie Em’s Baked Goods. Plus, if you need a dessert for your Mother’s Day brunch or dinner, you can pick up a pie!
You will also be able to check out a variety of seedlings for sale, so you can test out your own green thumb at home. “As with everything this spring, the seedlings are a little behind, but some of them are ready to go home with you!” notes farm manager Daisy Fair.
You can walk, bike or drive to the event, but please leave your four-legged friends at home.
Can’t make it this weekend? Copper Moose hosts intimate “Farm Dinners” on the property throughout the summer and fall, too — check out their events lineup HERE to learn more.
