Midsummer Night’s Fest Set for June 23

Sheep safely graze as the sun sets on Heatherhope Farm.

The golden evening is a most delicious thing. We sit on the deck in the cool of the evening and watch the sun set on the grazing ewes and lambs, listen to Vivaldi and Bach, sip wine and share pleasant thoughts.

We would be so glad for you to accept our invitation to be a part of such a celebration of the goodness of God’s creation. This year we will gather on Thursday, June 23 from 7:00 p.m. till we all melt away.

Last year we had our Fest in mid July and the air was humid and full of pesky bugs. We still had a good time, but this year, we trust things will be more conducive to lingering on the deck as the night enfolds us.

Again this year we will have local cheeses, veggies and wines to sample, and a great group of folk to get to know better. We will once again top the night off with a moment of prayer.

All we ask of you is to let us know you are coming so that we may make better plans. Leave a comment below or write us at heatherhopefarm@gmail.com to indicate how many people will be joining you. Go ahead-—invite your friends!  And feel free to bring your own favorite veggies for dipping as well. Of course, we will also have non-alcoholic beverages to enjoy.

But please, because of the nature of the evening, this event is for adults only.

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.
