WEATHER UPDATE 9 AM MARCH 1: We got about an inch of snow overnight, the main roads are clear. The back roads are snow covered but are slushy. If you are comfortable driving in the snow, you should have no issues getting here. One of our staff members got here in a car without 4 wheel drive and didn't have any trouble. We expect light rain the rest of the day so the back roads may be clear in a couple of hours.
Several people have mentioned that GPS took them down Walker Road yesterday, which is VERY icy. If you are on New Philadelphia Road and GPS tells you to turn onto Franklin School Road, DO NOT TURN. Keep going straight. When the road curves sharply to the left, stay straight, this will put you on Garrison Hollow Rd. The farm is on the left, about a mile after you stay straight on Garrison Hollow.
Drive safe and we hope to see you at the farm today!!
Due to expected bad weather in the morning (Sunday March 1st), we will be opening the kitchen at 11am so that our staff can get to the farm safely. We will be opening the store at 9am. Weather permitting, we will have the game area open, however the straw maze will not be set up. We expect to have quite a few vendors here tomorrow as well. Check back for updates tomorrow morning, we will post about our road conditions ASAP.
We also want to thank everyone who attended today! It was a great crowd for a cold day, we appreciate everyone who attended and hope you enjoyed your day here at the farm!!
