Old Farmers Day Picnic

We had a picnic to celebrate Old Farmer’s Day.  Old Farmer’s Day is a national day that is celebrated as a throwback to sustainable farming and farming practices of the old days. The month of October was chosen for this holiday since, traditionally during this time, the harvest would be mostly complete and farmers could take a break from their labors to enjoy this celebration.

Volunteer, Randy, grilled up over 70 hamburgers

 

For our picnic, we grilled hamburgers outside, despite the cold. We served them with baked beans, macaroni salad, potato chips, cookies and ice tea and lemonade.  Care Center families joined us as well.  It was a fun (and yummy) way to celebrate farming the old fashioned way.
