Farmers, cyclists and volunteers all agree that we had a fabulous time and our first Sandy Mush CTF was a great success.  Everyone is already asking about 2014!  A huge thanks to everyone who helped.

Meet your farmers for cycle to farm

Jen Billstrom, Cycle to Farm Event Director, and I made final pre-event farm visits this week.  Cyclists will have a fresh variety of food to sample and purchase:  fresh picked blackberries, homemade jam, pastured pork and turkey, beef as well as other tasty food, and Addison Farms wine.  Additionally, some of the farms will have their own crafted items for sale such as scarves, purses, hats.  The farmers are ready and excited to welcome the cyclists on Saturday the 28th.

Gearing up for Cycle to Farm Sandy Mush

We are looking forward to a beautiful Saturday, September 28th for the cyclists who will be touring our lovely farming community and sampling products from area farms.  To learn more about the ride or to share with friends who cycle, please visit Cycle to Farm Sandymush.  Our friends at Addison Farms Vineyard will be hosting the event, and cyclists will visit Gaining Ground Farm, Beulah Farm, Sandy Hollar Farm and Reeves Homeplace Farm.  After the ride, we will have a farm to table meal, and live music by David Ray and Firefly.   

A special thanks to friends whose businesses are helping sponsor our first Cycle to Farm:  Sandy Mush Herb Nursery, Mountain Physical Therapy and Training Partners.  Thanks to all sponsors, but these three are dear friends who are great women and run highly recommended businesses.  Also, thanks to everyone who is volunteering to help out in any way.  Thank you all!  We are going to have a wonderful time and raise awareness about farmland preservation.  Only two weeks to go so register now.
