New Farmers Let Off Steam @ The Spill

Farms at Work - New Farmer MixerLate summer is always a crazy time of year for farmers, rife with long harvest days and countless hours standing in parking lot farmers’ markets. So we were more than a little surprised when literally dozens of new farmers from around Peterborough County and beyond flocked to the Spill on Saturday night to unwind, catch up with friends, and enjoy some live music.

Complete with several delicious Night Kitchen pizzas, some delectable Dan LeDandan drinking chocolate, and the doo woppy/jazz stylings of farm band, The Sandy Pockets, the stage was set perfectly for an evening of mixing and mingling. 

Based on feedback we’ve received already, these events have become valued opportunities for new farmers to meet and interact with our growing agricultural communities. They’re also pretty great ways to maintain some semblance of a social life during the grind of a long farming season. While networking and community engagement are vitally important to the success of any farmer-entrepreneur, so too are those opportune moments to have some fun!

We’d like to thank everyone who came from far and wide to celebrate farming, food and community with us this weekend. Stay tuned for details on our next mixer soon!
