We have baby sextuplets up on Celo, and you can see them in the TV special on ABC News– just follow the link below! Bring your children or the child within you out to the farm to help with the feeding. Baby Goat Day is this Saturday, April 24th, 10a-5p.
Mountain Farm is a sustainable 24-acre lavender, blueberry and dairy goat farm in the Appalachian mountains of North Carolina. The owners, Jerry and Marilyn Cade, serve our community as medical doctor and nurse as well as running this incredibly beautiful farm. One of the most popular events in our area is the Lavender Festival, June 19-20, 2010, 10:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. - $5.00/person. This is a storybook setting with rolling hills and valleys and long-range views of our mountains. The weather is gorgeous, the animals adorable, and the lavender fields like stepping into another era. There will be homemade gourmet goat cheeses and ice creams, lavender lemonade, handcrafted soaps, artisanal bath and spa products, lavender plants for sale, a licensed massage therapist, children’s activities, wonderful food served picnic-style at Blueberry Cottage as you listen to live music and shop with local artists selling handmade pottery and other mountain crafts. Workshops include: Making lavender wands, sachets, wreaths, Garden tours and cultivation tips,Essential oil extraction demonstrations.
