House Concert Sunday, May 4th

The Granite Springs Farm Front Porch Music Series kicks off the 2014 season this Sunday! We just found out our friend (and GSF House Concert veteran) Gabriel Kelley is swinging through NC next week and he agreed to come play the porch at Granite Springs. As usual, we’ll kick off the event with a Potluck at 5:30 PM, so bring a dish to share and your favorite beverage and come on out to the farm. Bring a blanket to sit on and a friend! We’d like to support Gabe by suggesting a donation of $10 per person. If it’s wet or rainy, we’ll move the party inside to the Great Room. This event is kid friendly, but kindly leave your fur children at home. Our hens thank you in advance for that! And here’s a thought, if you’re planning on going to First Sunday in Pittsboro, (and why wouldn’t you?!) including the fabulous Gasoline Stove at the City Tap at 3 PM, then just plan to swing by Granite Springs afterwards. Sounds like the perfect Sunday to us! Here’s a link to more info and some music samples from Gabe:

 

CFSA Piedmont Farm Tour

The weather looks great! Come see us!

Workday and Potluck This Sunday From 2 to 6 PM

We’re hopeful that the weather is turning and Spring is actually here! We’re a bit behind where we’d like to be thanks to all the rain and cold, and we could use a few extra hands this Sunday, April 13th. We’d like to get the leeks planted, and maybe a few other things. No experience necessary and you’re welcome to come for whatever part of the day you are able. We’ll do farm tasks beginning at 2 PM and stop at 5 PM for a Potluck. If you can bring a dish to share, that would be great! Also bring work gloves, a water bottle, sunscreen, wheelbarrows and favorite gardening tools. Kids are welcome, but please leave your pets at home. No experience necessary!
