During this month each year, we again miss seeing our many friends at Byler's farm although we know it was time to move on. The folks who have bought the farm are lovely people who are taking very good care of the land. They have wonderful baked goods and more- especially on Friday and Saturday each week. They are closed on Sunday.

A BIG THANK YOU! to all of the friends who have helped us or visited the farm during our October Pumpkin Festival. Seeing people come & enjoy our farm has been a highlight of our lives. This year we have made the difficult decision to retire from the farm. We will miss all of the wonderful people who have come into our lives through this 28-year adventure. Now we hope to find someone else with dreams for a small farm.

Please come to our third sweet corn party Sat. Aug. 23, 2014. Bring your friends and neighbors. The purpose is to have an activity that celebrates harvest while preserving some of the abundance for winter. We provide the corn and the boiling water to blanche the corn. We suggest you bring lawn chairs, a sharp knife and roasting pan (or 9 x 13 cake pan) and zip lock freezer bags.

You will have the opportunity to join a circle around the pile of freshly pulled corn ears, husk them, someone will boil them for several minutes, cool the corn, then each of you will cut your own corn off the ears around tables set up under a canopy and take home some of it in your freezer bags.

There is no charge for the corn. We want an excuse for neighbors and friends to get together.

If you can spare only a few minutes, stop by and say hello and take some with you. We will have people available to assist anyone who has never prepared corn for freezing.

We plan to start by 7 am and continue until 11 am. You may come and go as you wish at any time between those hours.

Is the farm still running? I thought I saw a For Sale sign when I last drove past.
