Announcing Winterfest! A celebration of the winter season and the joys that can be found even in the depths of winter. I’m excited to host what I hope is the first of many annual winter festivals here at Runamuk.
On Saturday, February 20th from 11am to 2pm Runamuk Acres Farm & Apiary in Starks will be open to the public for family-friendly winter fun. Friends and family are invited to dress warmly and bring the kids along with their own sleds or snow-tubes to try the hills here on the farm, share hot cocoa around a warm outdoor fire, and nibble some cookies.
I’m a big believer in the need for people to get out of doors and connect with nature, to breathe the fresh Maine air and for kids of all ages to do something active. The hills that make up the landscape at Runamuk are perfect for sledding─there are gentler slopes out behind the old farmhouse that are great for the wee-ones, and behind the barn there is a stupendous steep hill for a more intense sledding adventure. The plan is to have friends from the farmers’ market here with snowmobiles to help pull sledders back up the hills. It should be a cranking good time!
I have a number of bee-schools, workshops and events planned at Runamuk for the 2016 season; view them by clicking on the Workshops link in the top menu to view dates!
