a great soap making class at the farm today!

We had a beautiful day today here at the farm! Besides making soap (we ate alot!) here is part of the menu.... Maple Valley Farms very own Squash and apple sauce... Grass fed beef with curry, our Maple Syrup drizzled on top and butter was stuffed in the organically grown squash...The table before the guest arrived with Leelanua Snickerdoodle Coffee and gift bags! Our official sponsor's today (and free gifts from) Johnny Seeds (Maple Valley Farms exclusive seeds) and Green Prints Magazine! Thanks Pat!
Maple Valley Farm's tasty pumpkin cakes with cream cheese frosting and nutmeg spice topping! (I ate 3 of them :) ) Don't feel bad you missed these cakes, we will have plenty of goodies at our organic Pumpkin Pie Make and Take and we are officially inviting YOU! Here is a photo of the peppermint soap we made.... Wrapped in raffia as well as some added wild rose hips from Maple Valley Farm! On the left of the soap is an Osage orange. We decorated the table all in Michigan nature... Rose hips, chestnuts from our tree and Osage oranges!
Here is homemade cranberry sauce (Michigan Cranberries of course) drizzled with our very own honey over Maple Valley Farm's goat cheese from our Matron Goat Sylvie...
We also had Beautiful weather today, again unseasonably warm, and a wonderful day to take a Belgian Horse Drawn Hay Ride for the farm tour! Thanks to our wonderful Guests, Lisa, Nancy, Linda, Amy and Sherry for coming out to the farm today! (more pics of yesterday here) And if you would like to see more photos of today from different angles simply become a friend of Maple Valley Farm on facebook!
