In the hurley burley of trying to finish the classrooms in time and get ready for spring, I am sadly behind. Our class schedule will be up soon! Caroline and I will be meeting this week to finalize the Yoga class details and chat about some really fantastic retreat type offerings she will be doing. Thanks for being patient - we're tackling one mountain at a time. Namaste.

Basic Beekeeping Class 

Learn about the basic equipment, tools, costs, legal issues, what to expect when harvesting your honey, resources and references.This class is the basis for our series. To become a beekeeper you need to know what you are getting into, while beekeeping is enjoyable it is also very complex and many folks jump in without regard to some of the realities involved. This class is a MUST for people considering beekeeping. Students receive a beekeeping book along with handouts. 

We offer a class session just about every month - pick one that works for you!

$45 person or $60 couple

February 28th from  9 a.m. to 1 p.m.

(Snowdate is March 14th 10-2 Just in case!)

It has been a while since I have made the time to write. We have been BUSY! Once the season wrapped up, Schooner and Becky have been busy with putting up the new pole barn and doing some reconstruction on the existing building. We hope that by March or April the classrooms, farm shop and office will all be done. We will keep you posted! Check out the FB page for photos on the construction. 

This fall Becky has done a good number of workshops and presentations all over our region. Apron History, Medieval Dye Gardens, Herbs, Cooking, Fermenting are just a few of the topics she has been sharing. Plus, we sell a good number of homemade jams, soaps, herbal items and such at several holiday gift sales - we are happy to report that we sold out of just about everything! 

The Garden Staff is almost done with the serpent mound! Only 25' yet to go. Mike and the fellas have done a tremendous job and we are so proud of them! We have been very blessed with a great crew. 

We would like to thank all of you that have been involved with Schooner Farms this past year - we are incredibly grateful. Having so many wonderful people surrounding the farm and putting their energy into what we do is an amazing feeling. Thank you - we couldn't do what we do without you. 

May your Holiday Season be Merry and Bright - 

Namaste

What a wonderful day we had this past Saturday with our friends from Bowling Green Montessori School. The group had their annual Fall Harvest Party despite the gloomy weather. The students kept warm with running around the farm, playing games, hayrides and lots of yummy hot soups, cocoa and mulled cider. The grownups kept warm with the bonfire. Music from Tóraigh an Sonas and Tim Concannon graced the grounds. The weather didn't dampen spirits and we all had a lovely time. This is the second year BGMS has had their harvest party at the farm and we certainly are grateful for their support and so glad they enjoy the farm.
