Whiskey Pigs

Last week, David Wells and I went down to the new Corsair Distillery in Nashville to begin collecting their spent grain.  As you can see, all are enjoying the bounty.  The day after unloading this sweet smelling stuff, the sows were grunting with glee as they turned in circles around my feet.  I hope that finishing our hogs on this whiskey barley - in addition to acorns, goat's milk, and love - will provide some of the best pork you've ever had!

Harvest Farm Party

You and yours are cordially invited to join the farmers and families of Ecotone for the First Annual Harvest Farm Party!  Join us just a few days before the Harvest Moon to share in the year's abundance and to celebrate this old rock of ours turning away from that sun!  

September 10, 2011 
Come out for an evening on the farm with friends, music, and more! 
Bring the kids, collect the eggs, visit the piglets, and meet the sheep!
Take a tour of the farm!
Relax with friends and become a member of the farm!
Share a meal with new friends, or with the neighbors you don't know!
Meet new Ecotone farmers Philip Adams and Ashley Putt!
Enjoy a presentation that details all of our fall and spring offerings!

There will be plenty of good, local food (with vegetarian options, of course) and drink, but feel free to bring something to share.  We'll begin to roast something delectable from the farm around dawn, and festivities begin in earnest in the evening.  All this farm fun begins around 5 pm, with dinner at approximately 6:30 pm.  Come out in the afternoon (say, 3:30ish) for a tour of Deerfield, the new farm we've leased to grow.  We will be at Ecotone all day, so if you can't make it to the main meal event in the evening, feel free to swing by and say hello.   

Everyone is welcome: friends, family, neighbors, the interested and disinterested.  So if you know of such folks, please forward them this preliminary invitation.  Stay for updates on this gathering and more!
