Good, because here at Goebbert’s it is always Fall in some way. Either it is summer and we are busy getting ready for it, or it is Fall and we’re in full apple-pumpkin mode, or it is winter or spring and we are recovering from it. It’s a good thing Fall is our favorite!
The busy Fall season really starts here on about July 1. That is when everything that needs to get ready starts getting ready. You might be surprised to learn that even though we don’t officially open for about six weeks (but who is counting?!) the Fall Market is getting set up right now, the café is getting a scrub down, and finishing touches are being added to our new bridge. That’s right- a new bridge. It will be hard to miss that on your visit to the farm during your Fall.
As much fun as it is to do all the preparing, what we are all really looking forward to is having our guests back to enjoy the hard work that has been happening since November 1. We are constantly trying to think of ways that we can add new and exciting things for our guests, and this upcoming season will be no exception.
This is exactly the reason why we are adding “Ghoul’s Night Out” Ladies night here in our Market on September 6th. From 6-8 pm we will be open in our Market for the Ladies to shop, sip, and sample. We’ll have raffle prizes, samples of many of our products, and offer a discount on items purchased in the Market. It is sure to be a fun night- come Trick or Treat us!
Just a few days before “Ghoul’s Night Out,” we have our Happy Jack Hustle 5K Run and Walk through the Farm and Orchard on September 2nd. We could not be more excited about this event! It’s a great way to start our season in a big way, and we hope that you consider joining us! After the race, proudly wear your finishers medal over to the donuts and cider and all day throughout the Farm while you stay and enjoy all of our activities. Farm admission is included in the race fee, and we’d love for you to stick around after finishing! If you haven’t registered yet, check out happyjackhustle.com for more details and to sign up.
If you’ve been on our website lately, you might have noticed a few updates, and our Facebook page is also a great place to see what is happening up to the minute. Online admission is live for the 2018 Season, so if you simply can’t wait for your day at the Farm, you can purchase your Admission now. Our Farmstand is open off of Route 47 every day from 10-6. How many different ways can you prepare fresh sweet corn? If you ask a Goebbert’s employee that question, they’d tell you TONS of ideas, but you’d get one common answer- fresh off the cob is our favorite, and we hope that you are enjoying it this season as much as we are.
If you’d like to sign up for “Ghoul’s Night,” or if you have any questions, please contact Emily at firstname.lastname@example.org or call our office at 847-464-5952. If we don’t answer, leave a message. We might be outside since Fall is calling.
