Open Farm - May 9, 2020

Posted on by Gilberte Doelle

Originally we were planning to do the REAL Open Farm in early May. 
Now, just like anywhere else, we can't really have a big gathering at our farm. 

So... we decided to go out of our comfort zone. 
We'll try our first virtual farm tour this year.
