Harmony Valley Farm Events in 2014 :
Strawberry Day-Sunday, June 22-Harmony Valley Farm Noon-6pm
Our first on-farm celebration of the season! CSA members are welcome to come to the area and stay for the weekend, but the formal tour and event is on Sunday. We will be having a potluck lunch, wagon tours of the farm and most important-strawberries! This is your chance to experience Harmony Valley Farm up close with a field tour, meet the people who grow your food, and even get a chance to feed the animals! Family friendly-a great event for kids of all ages!
Harvest Party-Sunday, September 21-Harmony Valley Farm Noon-5pm
Early fall is an incredible time to visit the valley and join us at the farm for a potluck, pig roast and u-pick pumpkins! For this day, we'll start with field tours that end in the pumpkin patch. Join us for an early supper; we'll supply the pig and beverages, and you supply the side dishes and desserts! As usual, you are more than welcome to spend the weekend at the farm, but activities are planned for Sunday only.
Visiting Harmony Valley Farm
We love to have members visit the farm! We are proud of our farm and it is a joy to share this beautiful place with others. We know that once you visit you will never think of your food or CSA in the same way again. Guests are welcome at the farm just about any time, just call or email ahead to let us know when you plan to arrive. This is a working farm, so during the workweek we may have more or less time to spend with you depending on what is happening on the farm. You can give yourself a tour of the fields or creek, or pitch in on appropriate tasks (most people's favorite). Some tasks require training or special dress, so call ahead to allow us to plan and be prepared. The whole crew sits down at noon to eat a meal prepared by our Summer Farm Chef; let us know how many to expect and we'll see if Chef can accommodate the group and you can join us for the meal. We are generally unavailable for tours on weekends, but can point you in the direction of a self-guided tour of nearby fields. We are at the Dane County Farmer's Market in Madison on Saturdays. Sundays are reserved for errands and a much deserved day off. If you plan to camp overnight, please call ahead so we can leave any special instructions and directions to the meadow. The best time to visit and get a tour is during one of our three on farm open house events. Save the dates!
If you plan to spend the night in our camping area, please call ahead. Our campground is primitive with no hookups for campers or motor homes. You will be able to drive your car to the site to unload supplies. A portable toilet will be provided at the campsite; drinking water, shower and restroom facilities are available in the packing shed. There are picnic tables, a refrigerator and stove in the shop area.
