Are you Coming?
We’re waiting for you!
And watching for you.
We’re discussing and making plans.
And promise to be on our best behavior.
Because Parsons’ Prairie Farm’s 2016 Fall Farm Day is almost here!
Last year we were so busy and had so much going on that we decided to cancel Fall Farm Day………a decision we regretted almost from the minute it was made. We so missed opening up the farm to visitors, meeting new friends and the enjoyment of sharing our farm with others. I vowed we would not miss a Fall Farm Day again! So come on out to the farm on Sunday afternoon, September 25th and see what we are all about. Learn about the alpacas and the fiber they produce. Shop the farm store for handspun yarns and hand dyed yarns, rovings and craft felts. Start your Holiday shopping early by browsing our selection of alpaca socks, hats and gloves as well as hand made soaps, made right on the farm! Try your luck at fishing in the farm pond, gather eggs in the hen house or just sit, relax and enjoy the farm day refreshments.
Things to keep in mind:
So far, every year that we have held Fall Farm Day we have been blessed with perfect weather! But we will hold the 2016 Fall Farm Day rain or shine, so come prepared for the weather. If the weather is nice, we will open the front female alpaca pasture so you can move among the alpacas. If it rains, we will figure out a way that visitors can view the alpacas close up and stay dry at the same time. In any kind of weather though, if you want to move among the alpacas, make sure to wear poop-proof footwear!
We would like to invite you to try your luck at fishing in our farm pond. We will mow down to the north pond (you will be able to drive down there if you wish) and will mow around the pond. Bring a pole, bait, a chair and bug spray to make your experience more enjoyable. Of course, all children must be accompanied by an adult.
We want your visit to be enjoyable. Feel free to wander the property and take all the pictures you want. If you find a nice, out of the way place to relax and enjoy the farm, please feel free to do so. Poke your head into the hay barn and look for the many (too many) barn cats that call the farm home. Check out the fruit trees, berry bushes and grapevines in the back yard. Whatever you choose to do, enjoy your farm visit!
Farm Day No Pets Policy – please do not bring your pets to Farm Day. We currently only have one dog, our livestock guardian dog, Bella on the farm. Bella has a job to do and although she might be visiting with Fall Farm Day guests, she is always alert and ready to defend the alpacas. Bringing other pets to Farm Days could possibly cause either your animals or ours to be hurt. We will all have a better experience if all pets are left at home.
Feel free to contact us should you have any questions. Look forward to seeing you on Fall Farm Days!
