Here is the newest summary of our last farm visited during Art Harvest program!
On Saturday, June 8th Township Valley Farms in Browns Valley. Our hosts, Kim & Martin Pedley gave us a tour of their property surrounded by golden rolling hills freckled by oak trees so artist could choose what agriculture they wanted to capture.
A large pond complete with remnants of trees expertly carved out by a now, deceived beaver. Their “hair” sheep that were being protected by a giant Pyrenees dog. A beautiful flock of hens, one of which laid an egg for us while watching! All of their hens have been held every day of their life and fed only organic grains; you know those eggs taste yummy.
Township Valley Farms delivers truly farm fresh eggs which by the way can be purchased at New Earth Market in Yuba City. Fields of various hops and basils made an awesome back drop for photo shoots and sketches. Look for Township Valley Farm’s Pesto sauce and fresh basil in a few months at New Earth Market. Artist was treated with homemade lemonade (made with lemons grown on the farm) after their artistic adventures in the fields.
Next trip is on July 13th! Contact D. Ellen Day at 674-5873 to sign up!
