Dear Friends,

The Wirtanen Farm Day Fall Festival event took place on Saturday, September 9,  2017 from 10 am to 4 pm. We were fortunate to see a break from all the rain we received this summer. The Strawberry Fields draft horses, baby farm animals and musicians entertained us all day.  Art Lehtonen wouldn’t miss it and provided us with Finnish music.  Jon Niemi and Don Guttormson played throughout the day. Local author, Dennis Esler, was at the farm signing his latest book.

Thank you to crafters, artisans and visitors for donations to support the farm. Also, kiitos to all the volunteers, without you we would not be able to achieve this.

The Annual Bake Sale is fast approaching and will be held on Friday, November 3rd & Saturday, November 4th from 8am to 5pm. Donated baked goods can be dropped off Thursday November 2nd from 4pm to 6pm at the Colvin Town Hall on Hwy. 4 in Markham, MN.  We will have lunch available for purchase between 11 and 4 (or until we run out). Cookbooks and postcards will also be for sale. They make great gifts!

Darlene Saumer, President
