We hosted our first wedding at the farm on August 1st. Our very good
friends Kenny and Tara, who both work with us during the maple syrup
season, were married on a gorgeous Saturday evening. It was beautiful.
Our only involvement was providing the venue – their friends and
family cleaned, decorated, set-up, and tore down all of the wedding
related things.

It was rustic and elegant. The weather was perfect. They brought in a
huge white tent. They had purple and white wildflowers, barn-board
signs, mason jars, and hay bales. Everyone had a wonderful time.

We have tossed around the idea of hosting weddings and special events
at the farm for a while. If you are looking for a very rustic, outdoor
setting for your event, shoot us an email at or call 812-967-4491

My little man turned three on August 10th. I can’t believe that he has
grown up so quickly. We had a Paw Patrol themed birthday party on
August 15th with our family. Mason’s big present was a trampoline. We
have been doing a lot of jumping.

He also started his second year of preschool on August 12th. He was so
grown up and didn’t cry at all on the first day.

Robert also finished his contract house this month. It will close
within the next two weeks. I know I’m biased, but it is a beautiful
house. Robert did a lot of the work himself and it is stunning.

Jenny has had a busy summer showing her horse. We are going down to
Lexington next weekend for her next show. She is showing at the
Preliminary level of eventing – with hopes of moving up to
Intermediate within the next year.

The maple syrup part of the farm is very repetitive to blog about on
the off season. We are still mowing a lot of grass, bottling syrup,
and making deliveries to our wholesale customers.  No new or exciting
updates to report :)

Hard to believe we are already at the half way mark to the 2016 festival. It's almost time to start cutting firewood!
