Art & Ag Tour 2014

Sunday afternoon my friend Becky & I took in a couple of farms, our first time participating in this new annual event.  It was just great.  Our first stop was Rocky Ridge Farm, here in town.  It was very hot, so most of the animals were in the shade or were pretty lethargic, but the gardens were beautiful, and we had fun checking out the little cabin there where they had items made on the farm, or by other local suppliers.  We actually spent the most time while we were at that location with the beekeepers – very interesting.  She opened up a container of the comb, just as they’d gotten it out of the hives, & picked up a dead bee that was in it.  She said that if anyone would eat a dead bee, they’d get a free jar of honey – and this guy jumped right on it.  She said she’d never had any takers before :-).  That was funny.get-attachment

Next stop was Inman Farms in York.  It was a farm from 1893, I believe it said, and you could take a walking tour around several of the old buildings.  The corn crib looked to be about the oldest, but the sun was so bright and hot I didn’t get a good picture.  Still, it was just such a neat old place.  We’re definitely putting it on our calendar to check out next year.get-attachment

  1. I know! He said not only did he not feel any kind of stinger, he couldn’t really tell the difference in the bee and the comb :-). And the honey was wonderful. We sampled a couple of different kinds, and she had some from hives she puts at the strawberry fields up at Springs in Fort Mill that I think was the best I ever tasted. Yum.

  2. My spouse and I stumbled over here from a different web address and thought I might
    check things out. I like what I see so now i’m following you.

    Look forward to looking into your web page for a second time.

  3. Today, while I was at work, my cousin stole my iPad and tested to see if it can survive
    a 25 foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation. My iPad is
    now broken and she has 83 views. I know this is entirely off topic but I had to
    share it with someone!

  5. Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it seems as though you
    relied on the video to make your point. You definitely know what youre
    talking about, why throw away your intelligence on just
    posting videos to your site when you could be giving us something enlightening to read?

  6. Hi! Someone in my Myspace group shared this site with us so I came to check it out.
