Farm to Ballet returns to Moonrise Farm, home of Sweet Pea & Friends for its season finale! Enjoy an enchanted evening that starts with farm tours and walk through the new Butterfly garden and pollinator habitat. Spread out a blanket for a picnic dinner under twinkle lights while enjoying this beautiful ballet. Moonrise Farm is a Storybook & Fiber Farm. Here, our guests will enjoy a balmy summer evening of ballet under a cool canopy of trees by the pond, sheep next to the barns and amongst the fireflies. Farm tours will introduce visitors to the real-life storybook characters of children's book series Sweet Pea & Friends by the farmer/author/illustrators John and Jennifer Churchman. Bring your own picnic dinner or enjoy a wood-fired pizza, ice cream, cookies, fresh maple or raspberry lemonade, Moonrise Farm Ice Tea and other seasonal treats for purchase in the event barn. A mid-summer evening of music, ballet, food and friends not to be missed.
Visit the henhouse, moonrise alpacas, sheepdogs and see the process of transforming wool into yarn in a special hands-on exhibit. Walk in the new public Butterfly & Pollinator Education Garden where over 750 Monarch Butterflies will be hand raised and released for southern migration.
