We have a lot of great things planned this summer at the farm. Thanks to the doctors and nurses, we're finally getting covid-19 under control and we will be resuming classes again this year. Due to the sensitive health of some of the folks here at Windy Thistle, we'll need proof of vaccination for 16 and older to go maskless. All classes are reservation only.
5/29 to 5/31 We're very excited to kick off our class season with our Memorial Day Weekend CAMPING 101 Event. This will be a full weekend camping event. We'll be teaching Camp Set ups, Fire Building, and Camp Cooking. Oh and you never want to miss the fire spinning around our Saturday Night Bonfire.
6/13 TIE DYE FOR FATHER's DAY - Come out to the farm with your kids and make colorful T-Shirt's for dad. We'll provide the dye, the shirts and the fun! Also, you can bring other 100% cotton items to dye for a nominal charge per garment.
6/27 GOATS MILK SOAP 101 - Learn how to make a simple super fatted soap with goat's milk, coconut oil and olive oil. No children allowed at this class. You'll go home with enough for about six soap bars of your own!
7/18 FREE COB OVEN EVENT - Dance in mud for your dinner! We'll be grilling the food and providing the atmosphere. You bring you, some friends, old clothes and get down and dirty, helping us build a cob Pizza Oven. I guarantee you will get muddy and have a blast going down to the river to clean up! Who doesn't need a reason to sling mud at your buds.
8/1 LADIE'S LUNCHEON & DAD/KIDS DAY AT THE ZOO - We're having just the ladies for a sit down afternoon tea. We'll be getting fancy with our lunch. There will be games and prizes. Spend an afternoon with your lady friends and laugh together without anyone else to care for! No men allowed! :D No kids either! Xander will meet all the dads and their kids at the zoo for a fun filled day. Dad's have to stay with their kids. lol
8/15 DIY CLEANERS: Learn how to make clothing detergent, simple household cleaners and air fresheners made with essential oils. You'll go home with enough to keep your house clean for the next month at least.
8/22 COB OVEN AND BBQ Bring your whole family out for the afternoon. We'll be grilling over the open fire and having the first Pizza's in our Cob Oven that we will build in July. There will be scavenger hunts for the kids and good times around the bonfire for the grownups.
