  This week is a great week for mushrooms! This wave of mushrooms look better than any so far. There should be plenty at the  farm market and at the Myrtle Beach market. If you are new to mushrooms do a little searching on the internet to see just how healthy shiitake mushrooms can be. There are recipes that can help also.

 The pumpkin patch will be open from 10 AM to 1:30 PM Saturday. Most likely it will not go past 1:30 so try to come early. Stock Pig Racing will be on a rough schedule most likely close to 8, 10, 11, 12, 1 PM and 2 PM. The barnyard will be open those hours as well.

  The Garden Center has a good selection of pansy and other fall flowers. Lots of fall decor items.

   The bakery is now making pumpkin rolls and has has added some fall themed desserts for the young at heart.

    The Produce market has some really good chestnuts. Take advantage of these pleasant  nights and roast some chestnuts on a fire or grill. Some good butternut and other winter squash and really nice beans and peas. The shiitake mushrooms produce in waves. This weekend looks good for another wave of mushrooms. Maybe this will help you plan you weekend? We still have some spots open for a group night time hay ride?

  The Bakery is now making pumpkin rolls! It is not too early to plan some of your meals for various gatherings during the Fall /holiday season.

 Thanks to all who came and helped make this Farm day a pleasant one. If you missed it please mark your calendar because this event day is consistently on the first Saturday of October. There are many very gracious people who come and share substantive experiences. Lots of surprises as Wayne Skipper and Lavon Hucks did a great job of picking and singing as they watched over the cane mill operations. Another surprise came on the race track from the number 5 Jeremiah . He pulled away from the pack to earn 75 points with Martha number 3 getting 63 points. The rest of the pack was very , very close. The pigs are sleeping good tonight and I  imagine some kids may be too.

  Nest Saturday we will have the Pumpkin Patch open and Stock Pig Racing will continue. Then October 18 is Pumpkin Day.

  Our shitake mushrooms have begun to emerge. Shitakes are known to be a champion among helathy foods. You can freeze shitakes to keep a supply on hand. Look for them at the farm market or with Sarah at the farmer's market in Myrtle Beach.

 Thinking of healthy, the grape juice is another good healthy choice as well.

  Welcome , if you are looking for information on the tours or Events days look under the main tabs ( the experience) at the top and find fall tours and event days. Thanks

  It is very encouraging to hear from so many people who have wanted to know the dates for the Fall events. Your expressions of how much you have enjoyed these days means so much to us. It is no small thing to be able to make good times that turn into valued memories. We have desired to make the days an environment for family interaction.

  This year Farm Heritage Day is October 4

                 Pumpkin Day is    October 18

               PYO pumpkins is open on both of the event days. It is open on Saturday mornings all through October. Night time hay rides are by reservations ( see website for details).

This year Jack be Quick ( the boar ) and Esther ( Essie the sow) have produced another litter of racing pigs. At this writing they are about five weeks old. They have had some good preparation for training. Of the five weeks they spent most of it on the dirt. Almost two full weeks on pasture. One of the keys to winning in  Stockpig racing is to be able to figure out quickly. Sometimes pigs get confused which way to go on the track or lose their routine of running and get distracted by the crowd. Being out on the pasture figuring out how to get through this hole or get around the fence back to that hole that they came through actually helps pigs on the track. In the early training is when you need to help pigs learn and figure out how to run instead of just loafing on the track. This year's STOCKPIG Racing is looking very good. Stay tuned on facebook ( Indigo Farms market ) to follow the 2014 series and see who wins the championship.
