Easter Egg Acres
Easter Egg Acres, the goat farm in Ellicott where we've been before, needs some help on Sunday stacking 65 lb. bales of hay. Join us and spend the day out in the country, helping local farmers and visiting with the goats! The farm will make lunch for us and I promise you'll be hungry!
We'll plan to leave here at 9AM. I've set the end time to 4PM, but you can leave earlier. Five hours of farm labor is a lot for anyone.
Update: Here is the schedule. It's only two or three hours of work.
• Arrive at the farm between 10:00 and 10:30 AM
• We'll stack hay for a couple of hours. Depending on the number of volunteers, it will take 2 - 3 hours
• Marilan will give us lunch around 1:00 PM
• The day will end after lunch
People usually ask if they can bring children. This would not be a good day to bring small children, but supervised teenagers are welcome. This is character-building work for young men and women!
Bring water and sunscreen. Wear closed shoes and long sleeves.
Note: Hay is in high demand and sensitive to weather at this time of year. If they can't get the hay, we'll have to reschedule. I'll confirm on Saturday. Keep an eye on your email!
