Please be VERY VIGILANT once you are on the farm as there quite possibly will be VERY LARGE NOISY EQUIPMENT entering and leaving the yard for Wheat harvest. PLEASE DO NOT LET YOUR DOGS OFF LEASH!!!!!!!
Please note when walking your dogs that no one shall go past the plane of the shop as that is
where our equipment is and will leave Carolyn’s husband working room for harvest.
