"Farm Day 2011" by Beth Weick, as published in North Country News, August 2011

It's that time of year…D Acres 14th Annual Farm Day Celebration is just around the corner! We welcome you to join us for good food and good times on Saturday, August 13th. This isn't just any 'ole gathering here at the homestead: this is the event of the summer. A bountiful season is well underway and we're excited to share the fruits (& vegetables) of our labor with you. Rain or shine – we've got our circus tent up and a pig roast waiting for you!

Farm Day routinely brings over 200 people to the farm, and we expect to well exceed that number here in 2011. Festivities begin at 4pm, with a farm tour, face-painting, kids weaving activities, and a variety of local organizations showcasing their efforts. And that's just to get things started! Our famous pig roast dinner will kick off at 6pm, accompanied by a variety of home-grown and local delectables – potluck desserts are always welcome!

This year's entertainment will be brought to you by the Sugar River Band. Music will begin during the dinner hour, then we'll clear the tables and have a good old fashioned barn dance at 7:30pm. Don't miss this one!

In addition to music and food, Farm Day is a great time to test your luck at prize winning while supporting the farm. We will be raffling items donated by local businesses and community members – all proceeds will support the ongoing educational programming at D Acres. Prizes include a night's stay at Indian Head Resort, boat rental vouchers, a geneology search, children's books, artisanal goods by local artists, and a Mary Kay products.

Save the Date! Saturday, August 13, 4pm; dinner begins at 6pm. A $10 suggested donation will be greatly appreciated. Proceeds generated from this event will be used to fund educational programs and operational expenses for the farm. We hope to see you and your family at Farm Day 2011!
