Supporters Enjoy Field Day at the Brittain Farm
Supporters gathered at the Franklin County farm of Mary Ann and Bill Brittain for Tar River Land Conservancy’s ninth Field Day on the Farm celebration. Participants enjoyed a delicious lunch with local pork provided by MAE Farm and strawberries, lettuces, and tomatoes provided by Vollmer Farm.
The event featured music by North Carolina singer-songwriter Marc Miller, children’s activities, wool spinning demonstrations, and a silent auction and raffle. After lunch, kids and adults enjoyed an educational hike through a restored native prairie and along Lynch Creek. Our hike was led by geologists Skip Stoddard and Randy Bechtel from the NC Geological Survey, Charles Yelton from the Prairie Ridge Ecostation, and our hostess Mary Ann Brittain.
