It's a Rockin' Horse Round Up Food Truck Benefit!

Thursday, August 22 at 5:00pm-Dark

Come out on a beautiful summer evening in support of a local nonprofit, the North Carolina Therapeutic Riding Center, located on a 28-acre farm in Orange County. 

Family Friendly Farm Fun~

Your Donation will help Children and Adults with Disabilities

Pony up to gourmet food trucks serving savory and sweet local fare. Let Only Burger, Chirba Chirba Dumplings, Mac Ur Roni, Local Yogurt on the Go prepare dinner and dessert for you!

Enjoy live music donated by Tom Maxwell and the Minor Drag and cold beer on tap from Carolina Brewery
Breathe in that country air while the kids free play in the wide open spaces! Kids of all ages love to romp on the farm, our playground and basketball court too. See a dynamic Hippotherapy and therapeutic riding demonstration in the huge arena and the life-changing work happening right in our local community. As the sun sets over this lovely farm, just relax, chat with friends, and take a stroll with the horses calmly munching in the pastures. Visit with Daisy, one of the Hippotherapy ponies, and the honorary mascot of the new Orange Grove Fire Station 3, under construction right next door. To celebrate the new station, a fire truck will join the food vendors especially for this event.

From 5 pm to dark, celebrate and support a nonprofit from Orange County established over 35 years ago. Join together to help local children and adults with disabilities maximize their potential with the aid of a horse. Your donation stays local!

The NC Therapeutic Riding Center empowers children and adults with physical, emotional, mental and social challenges to create active, healthier and more fulfilling lives through equine-assisted activities and therapies.

Never Any Rest...

There's never any rest for a true farmer...from working in currently very muddy fields, to shipping our products all over the US, to carefully preparing new handmade goodies for the Laze Days Arts & Crafts Festival inventory which will take place this Saturday 8/24.

Seeing you soon is the reward for many long days and work filled weekends!

Lavender Tid-Bit #5

Did you know that over 2500 years ago, lavender was used in ancient Egypt during the mummification process?

Imagine...your entire body (inside and out) smelling like lavender forever! Something that I'm sure would have suited King Tut just fine.
