Maine's Open Farm Day

Join us on Sunday, July 25 from 10 - 3 for Maine Open Farm Day!

Maine's Agricultural Community welcomes visitors on Open Farm Day ~ 

Every summer on the third Sunday in July, farms all over the state of Maine open their barn doors to the public to give them a chance to see where their food and fiber comes from.  Stop in for a visit.  We would love to chat with you about what we do here.  Visit with the sheep, draft horses, cows, donkey, pigs, goats, guines, chickens, ducks, rabbits, dogs & cats that make up the animal kindgdom here at Tylerfarm.  

Browse our Farm Mercantile.  We have a new supply of natural and dyed spun yarns  and roving from the sheep and goats that live on the farm and a couple of alpacas that spent a little time here as well.  Everything in the shop other than food products will be offered at 20% off!  

We will have spinning demonstrations throughout the day; farm tours at your own pace; a petting area and  folks around to answer your questions and chat with.  

The newest hatch on the farm ~

To read a nicely written  article about he farm and Open Farm Day, pick up a copy of the Tourist News.  A free guide to southern Maine and what's going on.  We were very proud to be approached by these folks and are so pleased with the article.  Thank you Anita for a job well done!

Hope to see you all on Sunday!

We can't make it to Maine, but it is certainly a pleasure to read about your wonderful farm. Congrats on the keets!

I wish I was closer because I would love to attend!

Good luck with it.
It sounds like a very good event.

The guinea and keets are so pretty.
We had 2 large hatches this summer but 1 hatch is down to 3 and the other 6. Too many varmits around to catch them.

Have a good time at your Maine Open Farm Day event.

Boy, oh, Boy, do I wish I could make it and Matt will be disappointed that we miss it. He is back to working and is even working as I post this.

Having the farms open to visitors is a wonderful idea. Wish I could take a tour. The people of Maine are very lucky. Thanks for your posts and photos.

I would love to see a Maine farm. Maybe someday I'll get to the East Coast. (My son was just in PA for skateboard camp...lucky kid!). Hope you have lots of visitors (and many new customers).
