Farm Notes: We are gearing up for the annual Hoes Down Harvest Festival happening on October 7, 2017. We look forward to this multi-farm celebration of the region’s bounty. One of the ways Riverdog Farm supports the event is our donation of 400 gourds for the children’s area. We grow the gourds two years before the event, as they require a year to dry. Watching the swarm of kids fervently washing and painting their gourds during Hoes Down is such a kick!!
