xmas-boot

It’s almost time to “trim the tree” and everything else around the homestead.

If you can spare a few hours, on Saturday, November 18 volunteers will be meeting to decorate the homestead.  The barn, the fences, the Gibbs House and the cabin will all need decorating.

Decorating volunteers are to meet at 10:00 am in the cabin.

Hope to see you there.

Farmers Market open on Saturday mornings

The Stearns farmers market is up and running on Saturday mornings from 9:00 am to 1:00 pm, usually in the front pasture.   If the pasture is soggy from rain, look for us set up on the blacktop, up the drive, between the two historic homes. The farmers market features local produce, bakery, Ohio maple syrup, local honey, specialty items and more! Cooking demonstrations too! Stop by to shop, and stay awhile to enjoy the farm animals at the farm – we look forward to seeing you next week!
