The Leaves, they are a-changin'

What a weekend here on the farm!

Hey there. Steph here, checking in on the recent happenings here at D Acres.

We hosted approximately 40-50 rock climbers in the hostel and on the grounds the entire weekend. It was like grand central station! We made sure everyone was well fed before hitting the crags every day, and I think it was much appreciated. On Sunday morning, we fed 30 or so guests from 7:30-8:30am before prepping for D Acres' monthly Farm Feast Breakfast for 72 people at 10am! We worked very well as a team
and completed the task with smiles on our faces.

I fed the pigs this morning and was greeted with grunts of satisfaction. Little Rocket was the first to begin tugging at my pants before I could get his meal to him.

Everyone has been so busy getting things together for the Traditional Arts Fair here at D Acres this Saturday (the 12th, be there or be square). Luckily, everything is falling into place nicely due to the dedication, motivation, and organization of on and all at the farm. I'm so excited! Check out our website at to learn more about the Trad Arts Fair, including the schedule and presenter bios.

Karen has been working long and hard spear-heading the bulk of the harvest in time for fall. We are all doing our part weeding, preparing beds for the cold, and planting fall crops. You should have seen the size of the carrot that was harvested yesterday morning! Definitely a pounder, at least!
