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 17 Lutes and their coaches? Be there to witness feats of strength and farming that will be talked about for generations!
Attendees are encouraged to check back to this website weather-related delays or changes, since the horses are unable to plow in muddy conditions.
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.
