Upcoming Events

> Saturday, November 12th | Martinmas Celebration. Distelrath Farms is happy to host a cultural holiday event on behalf of a school family. Join us from 4:00 - 6:30 p.m. for a celebration of Martinmas, a holiday that honors the spark we each have -- and that reminds us all to be a light in the dark season we are entering. 

Families can make lanterns together at 4 p.m., and our group will go on a lighted walk through the farm at 5:30 p.m. Please bring an appropriately-sized glass jar with you to make your lantern. All other supplies will be provided (but feel free to bring your own beautiful lanterns that you may already have, and join us for socializing). We will wrap up around 6:30 p.m. 

We will also be collecting hats, coats, scarves, etc, in good condition that you may not need any longer, to give to those who can use them. It is a great way to literally bring warmth to others this winter! RSVP here


> Monday, November 14th | Monday Student Market. Each Monday from 1 p.m. - 4 p.m., our students sell fresh seasonal produce, herbs, flowers and much more at the farm pavilion. 

This activity helps us to build crucial math, business and social skills. We really enjoy interacting with customers, counting change, and selling products we have grown and harvested. 

All proceeds will go toward program development for our students. We'll see you there!
