Farm Visit: Flint Hill Chapter of American Agri-women

 We began our Saturday by hosting a really great group of women with a mission close to our hearts - education about and advocacy for agriculture.

The Flint Hills Chapter of American Agri-women were a small, but mighty group of visitors who brought great curiosity and a generous spirit.  We had an awesome time with them!

We started with a farm tour where we talked about our adventure with alpacas.  The group had great questions!

 We had wonderful weather.  I had been having some stressed out moments thinking about a possible plan for wet or cold weather.  We were so thankful for a cool morning with beautiful sunshine.
Jeremy did so much to get the yard and animals ready.  I spent more time preparing the brunch, but he had the hard job of mowing, trimming, putting on halters and all of the other items on the chore list.  Kobe was one of the animals we wanted to highlight for the groups.  He was a little antsy.

 We were so pleased to receive this adorable hand painted gourd with chocolate alpacas.  A super cute gift (and tasty!).

I love that this was handmade and from the heart - my favorite kind of gift.

Our thank you was also a repurposed feedsack bag.  These are such an innovative way to reuse and recycle and it's a very durable (and waterproof) material.  I love the detail on the inside with the sweet cotton print fabric and the pockets.  This will get a lot of use!
