Have you ever wanted to know where the honey sold @ The Farmstand comes from? Beekeeper Dale Brooks, from Brooks’s Kounty Honey in New Berlin, will have his observation hive here (weather permitting) this Saturday, April 29th, to answer any questions you have and let you see how those bees work. (No, there’s no risk of getting stung!)

Want to see how our popular alpaca yarn & dryer balls begin? Willow City Farm's Alpaca Shearing Day is coming up Tuesday, May 9th, so "save the date" if you're interested in volunteering to help for a bit! It will most likely begin around noon will finish up about 5pm. (Due to fast moving large animals, it’s not a kid-friendly event. Sorry!)
