Vacation Time

The time is coming fast! Cobblestone Farms will be on vacation July 1 - 10.

Okay, so those who know me, probably know it won't all be vacation! I get to catch up on chores around my own home. My list of chores has grown so it's time to get some of those things off the list. The Christmas Tree Farm needs tending to. Mowing and weed control consume a lot of time. Shearing has started. June is when we start shearing the White Pine. Then the Douglas Fir are ready in July. After that it's the all the other Firs and Spruce. Mom and I have already knocked out most of the White Pine.

I will get away a little for some R&R at some point. Maybe the shore or the mountains. Depends on the weather!

When we reopen on the 11th I will change hours a bit. I will be closed Mondays and Tuesdays thru September only. I need the extra day to do more shearing. I'm just getting a little older and those early mornings and late evenings I did shearing in the last few years is wearing on me. The rest of the hours will remain the same. Wednesday - Friday: 10-6; Saturday: 10-5; Sunday: 11-5.

Busy with Christmas displays

Today is the last day of the Lancaster County's Best Kept Secrets Tour. I hope all that joined in had a great time finding lots of new businesses you will patronize in the future. The Berks Tour is coming up in November. We only have few bags left for sale.

Christmas time is here again! Boy, am I having a hard time wrapping my head around setting up Christmas displays. Feels a little off while decorating trees. But, it won't be long and I'll find myself humming Christmas songs as I get out all the new items that have been arriving.

Lots of new Advent calendars have arrived. Trees, trucks, trains, cards.

You need to see to enjoy!

See you soon!

Dog Days of Summer...

These last weeks have been hot and long.

So...what's going on at the barn?

Cleaning, organizing, chasing spider webs and generally getting ready for Fall and Christmas.

Christmas and Fall items have started to arrive so look for more info as we get through those boxes and get those items out for you.

Guineas and chickens....sorry, but I still haven't had the time to go through my pics to post of those adventures. I promise I will get to that at some point!

New Spring Things!

St. Patty's Day is coming and we have some nice gifts or just a lil something to set on your desk in honor of that day!

Lots of beautiful, new linens for your tables and dressers. The new designs are just gorgeous!

I found these wonderfully handmade wooden wall plaques at a recent show.

I just had to get them for you. There's a few different designs. Flowers, Hummingbirds and Deer plaques. It is amazing how there are so many different types of woods used in creating these. and...they are not made in China...they are made in Vietnam. I met the young gentlemen that have this business.

Sweet Grass stocking of Body Wash and much more!
