Midsummer Night's Fest, July 14

Midsummer Night’s Fest
July 14, 2010
Starting at 7:00 p.m.

Imagine: The golden sun is setting slowly over green pastures filled with lazily grazing sheep. A Vivaldi mandolin concerto is playing. And you are taking it all in, surrounded by a group of wonderful people while you sip wine and sample cheeses.

 A ban is enforced on noise and clutter from traffic, television or twittering. You relax into an old- fashioned peace as you watch the glow of the setting sun fade and cast your eyes about for the first stars of the evening making their furtive appearances. God is great, God is good!

We invite you to Heatherhope Farm for such a Midsummer Night’s Fest on Wednesday, July 14, from 7:00 p.m. till we all melt away. For obvious reasons this will be an adults only affair.

We will need to know how many people are coming, so you can leave a comment below or e-mail us at heatherhopefarm@gmail.com. But consider bringing your friends, or the people you would like to be your new friends.

We will make this a celebration of eating local. The wine will be from Prairie State Winery in Genoa, Illinois and the cheeses and veggies will be from local producers, including the garden at Heatherhope. Feel free to bring your own veggies for dipping as well. We will also have non-alcoholic beverages as well as coffee.

Come rain or shine. We hope and pray for a beautiful sunset, but we have plenty of room inside and it can be sweet to look out onto a summer rain.

Find directions to the farm on the “Directions” page of this web site, or please feel free to contact us if you have questions.

    Hi Connie and John!
    This looks like fun. We’d like to get together sometime this summer…maybe in July?
    Peace, Judy
