We’re slowly getting settled here at the Hive House─there are several projects I’m in the midst of, and a number of tasks still wanting my attention, but I’m gaining. After taking last week off from market and Johnny’s for the #GreatFarmMove, I’ll be back at the Madison Farmers’ Market this Saturday, and then back to Johnny’s Selected Seeds on Monday and Tuesday. My honeymoon with the Hive House is drawing to a close, but our love story is just beginning and I am blissfully happy in my work.
I want to share my joy and celebrate this victory with everyone who has ever supported Runamuk─and me─and so I’ve decided to throw a big “FarmWarming” party here on Saturday, August 11th. Family, friends, and the spectrum of community that has supported Runamuk over the last decade are all invited to come check out our new digs, share some good food with some great people, (I’m betting I’ll be able to wrangle a few musicians to play for us too!) and celebrate this momentous achievement with me.
This invite includes loyal blog readers and followers who are not local to central Maine. I now have a field where we can pitch your tent or park your RV; there are accommodations at various motels and hotels in nearby towns. Feel free to email me for details if you’re interested in joining us for the festivities and are coming from away.
Note: While this event is not about gifts, there is a working registry being coordinated by my friend Kamala Hahn─a list of items that I am lacking and could use help with. I’ve made a few necessary investments for the new house and farm (like a new mower), but finances are tight and are likely to be that way for the foreseeable future til I can get Runamuk up and running here. Anyone looking to bring a farm-warming gift, who wants to know what I really need here, should email or call me for Kamala’s contact info.
I hope you will all join me on the 11th of August for a grand celebration of Runamuk’s new forever-farm; let me share this joyous victory with you! Runamuk will provide burgers and bar-b-qued chicken, pasta salad, lemonade and iced tea, as well as a modest selection of adult beverages (beer and wine); however I’ve had a lot of help along this journey so the guest-list is long and I’m encouraging friends and family to bring a dish to share so that we can have enough to go around. Definitely BYOB and BYOC (bring your own chair), and if you play an instrument bring that too!!!
The Runamuk FarmWarming Party is going to be a fabulous time! Won’t you please join me?
