Horse Plow Poster 2013 postponed

 

 

 

 

The Horse Plow has been POSTPONED due to the weather. Stay tuned for the rescheduled date.

Join us at this event perfect for the whole family!

We’ll tip off the growing season properly with a battle to determine which species is superior, the horse, or the college basketball player. Will the draft horses plow more field, or will 13 Lutes and their coaches? Be there to witness feats of strength and farming that will be talked about for generations!

Emergency Food Network’s Mother Earth Farm grows more than 40 varieties of vegetables, as well as fruit trees.  Bees are kept on site to pollinate, and their honey is collected for distribution as well.  Vegetables grown at Mother Earth Farm are harvested and delivered fresh to emergency food programs around Pierce County, often on the same day that it is harvested.

Attendees are encouraged to check back at this website for rescheduling of this event due to inclement weather, as the teams of draft horses are unable to plow the fields in muddy conditions.

Directions to Mother Earth Farm:  Take HWY 512 (to Puyallup) and follow signs east to Highway 410 East (Yakima/Sumner) exit.  Follow 410 to second Sumner exit (Valley Avenue/Orting-Highway 162); and turn right at stoplight at end of exit ramp (toward Orting).  Drive approximately 1.9 miles (past Alderton and Spooner Farms) to 102nd.  Look for gravel road on left – Mother Earth Farm sign will be at entrance to 102nd.  Farm is at the end of the gravel road on the right.
