•2:15-3:00 Workshop Options
Option #1 Reflective Writing with Hope Hall: What does your inner voice sound like? What is it saying? Leave with a fun piece of writing as a reminder for when you get busy and the noise of life begins to drown out the part of yourself who most deserves to be heard.
Option #2 Seasonal Self Care with Kelly Rich: Do you have a daily self-care routine? Does it shift with the seasons? We will dive into an Ayurvedic daily regimen to enhance and cleanse the six senses, along with tips for an autumn detox!

Spend Half an hour in the cheese kitchen mixing up your own chevre and learning a bit about cheesemaking with Hope. Then head out to the pasture for some goat time.

{After you have had a great day at the farm, consider returning for the farm’s Open Creamery Celebration on Sunday from 10-3. There will be a number of women-owned, dairy-related businesses set up for a mini farmer’s market in the driveway, and Locally Sauced Food truck will be serving up a delicious lunch — burritos with Sunflower Farm chevre. A collection of varied Creameries open their door around the state. If you head to the Maine Cheese Guild website you can download a map and see how many you can see in a day.}
