Harvest Festival 2012

The Harvest Festival this year, our fourth, was also Sunflower River’s fifth anniversary.

Over 100 people came down over the course of the day to see the farm, enjoy the potluck and one another’s company, catch up with friends old and new, and take part in our annual Pie Contest.

Brian, Jim and others from Wildlife Rescue, Inc New Mexico came down this year with raptors to give a presentation on wild birds, and on what WRI does. this was well-received and seeing the birds was highlight of the day for many.
