Learn where your food comes from at Family Farm Day


September 27, 2012

HAWLEY, PA — Get an up-close view of some of the farm animals that help to produce fresh, local food during Mill Market’s Family Farm Day on September 29, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Hawley Silk Mill. The event is free and open to the public.

Mill Market is a one-stop source for local food and goods made within 200 miles of the Lake Wallenpaupack region. The market fosters sustainability and a thriving local economy through its support of keeping locally spent dollars “local.”

Guests at Family Farm Day will meet chickens from Spruce Hill Farm, pygmy goats from Windy Pond Farm and enjoy samples of local honey from the Northeastern PA Beekeepers Association. There will also be educational exhibits by the Youth Council of Wayne County 4-H, the Penn State Cooperative Extension of Wayne County, Shop Local Save Land and Delaware Highlands Conservancy.

From 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. during the event, musician Dave Brown will entertain guests with some homegrown folk and bluegrass music.
