we live about 15 miles out of town and while it has its inconveniences, the drive is always stunning. every day we pass by a particular parcel of idyllic farm property: rolling meadows, ponds, cows scattered among the copse, dancing oak trees, verdant pastures. the place has remained a mystery until this weekend when adventure farm opened its gates for a fall festival. we ran into people we knew, scratched a calf between the ears, ate chili made from the free range grass fed cows that roam the land, lolled about on hay bales while sweet banjo notes filled the air, picked a couple of pumpkins and marveled at the view of the beloved blue ridge.
it was gratifying to have a pumpkin patch so close to home on such amazing property. and it was fun to spend a beautiful afternoon in a beautiful place. adventure farm is open every weekend in october and i urge the local folks to go and check it out!
