Gather and Feast Farm is hosting a Potato Party. Now, you are probably asking yourself, “What exactly is a Potato party?”
Well, it’s pretty simple. Bring your family, wear your masks, help harvest some potatoes, and take home some amazing farm-grown produce as a reward.
“Our tractor will do the majority of the digging, but we need your help to pick the potatoes up from the earth and sort them into boxes. Expect to stay around two hours. When you’re done, you and your family will be sent home with a bountiful bag of fresh, Gather and Feast Farm-grown produce!” ~Gather and Fest Farm
The Potato party will be held on Thursday, July 30, 2020, from 7:00 PM until dark, and Sunday, August 2nd from 8:00 AM to 10:00 AM or 7:00 Pm to dark. Spots are limited and you must pre-register to attend.
