Hi~ all!
We are going to have a Potato Party day on 2nd July!

Come join us for a fun-filled day with the option of camping.
limited spots available, rsvp early!

Potatoes are planted in April and through the harsh temperature of cold nights, from a piece of sprout to root and get energy from soil to grow to be a fistful of potatoes, it takes only a couple of months. And they're finally waiting to be harvested!

Oh dear, our life is not complete without fish n chips, fries and burgers, and mashed potatoes! How about burritos and pizza? Oh, and beer!!!

So, we will have a potato party at a farm. The host kindly invites us to a farm shaded by hundred year old chedtnut trees, with a river flowing nearby and lotus flower garden. Remarkably, the farm is located at the bottom of a mountain commanding the best view to Bukhansansan National Park from the peak. Why not hike up to the peak (495 meters) for an hour.

At sunset froggies sing an endless symphony, soothing our hearts.

We will have a time schedule as follows. Make sure you are ready to take part in whichever activities you like! Hard to miss any!

  1. Diggingin the soil and unearthing our treasure... potatoes!
  2. Potato peeling contest..winner gets a prize!
  3. Making potato pancakes, potato burritos, potato pizza, mashed potatoes, potato salad ( each have 5k~10k won fee; take what you make, or make them all for 25,000)
  4. Roasting potatoes on the bonfire
  5. Take a walk to lotus garden to see flowers reflected by moon light. Fireflies if lucky.

There will be music flowing with draft beer(and Makgeolri) stand, singing room (Noraebang, karaoke).

And there are campsites (20 spots limited, 35Kwon per deck) you can claim by email and camping tent(5K won), sleeping bags (5K won) you can rent.

The Chestnut Forest Potato Lotus Flower Farm is located near Gupabal station(end of line3)
is 20 min distance by bus. The details will be sent to those paid 10K won participant fee.

Details of timeline will be sent to those RSVP yes.
Participants are limited to 100 people.
Campers can take part in sunrise hiking.
Also we will gather families with kids to kid-friendly nature activities, such as a scavenger hunt.

Preparation:

Bring/wear comfortable clothes, including sun hat. You may wish to have a change of clothes if you're likely to play in the river. Campers bring all your usual camping gear.
