Thanks for Joining Us! Pumpkins and Pints Recap
Wow! We want to send a big thanks to everyone who joined us for the Pumpkins and Pints in Our Pasture celebration on Sunday, October 23rd. We enjoyed the fine company and fresh air on a full day out on our farm.
Record numbers of eager pumpkin carvers and friends flocked to our new farmland in Ashland, OR for the third year Standing Stone’s annual pre-Halloween event. We were so happy to host it on our farm this year to enjoy the weather and seasonal fare of fall and welcome everyone to our new land.
Together, everyone carved 120 pumpkins! We’re excited to see these great jack-o-lanterns on porches and doorsteps around town. We also went through lots of apple cider and ale on tap, as well as bratwursts, burgers, veggie burgers and pears, since the pumpkin carvers and bike cyclists worked up a thirst and hunger on the warm day.
A big thank you to the musicians who played for our guests! Standing Stone employees Sarah Goldberg, Alex Davis-Mauney, and Brandon Schilling all took part in furthering the ambiance by offering their musical talents. Local musician, Jeff Kloetzel also joined in the fun, bringing Jef Ramsey on mandolin to accompany him on guitar and vocals.
We had our farm gurus on hand to educate interested people about our practices and plans, and introduce everyone to our new cows, chickens and farm dogs (or puppies, for now). Folks got up close and personal with these new Standing Stone family members, as well as some visiting goats and horses from Valley View Beef’s Dave Westerberg, who rode in with cowboy boots and hat.
We’re excited to put together more events out on the pasture as our farm grows and grows. Stay tuned for more news and pictures of our land and our animal residents, as we’ll keep everyone up to date on this fun farm building.
