…going to the Heirloom Expo…

Tomorrow is the start of the Heirloom Expo in Santa Rosa. We’ll be there at the expo’s farmers market with apples and grapes and seeds and our latest farm product, a series of greeting cards based on great photos of our chickens, mostly taken by friends Kate and Azlon. Here’s Ocean, a fierce-looking Blue Marans hen as recorded by Kate Black:

We’ll get the cards onto the web site’s farm stand eventually. Meanwhile, the expo is Tuesday through Thursday, 11 a.m. – 9 p.m., at the Sonoma County fairgrounds. Lin will be presenting her Chickens 101 class at noon on Tuesday and 3 p.m. on Thursday. There are classes and speakers all day, tons (literally) of vegetable diversity on display, rare livestock breeds to meet, and if last year’s debut is any indication, a whole lot of the most hopeful, engaged and encouraging people you’re likely to find.
