Drum Kiva:

Tweeners will perform at the Feedbag Cafe during the pauses between the main stage events, and late into the night. Check the schedule posted at the Cafe for exact times.

Labyrinth Walk:

Labyrinths have been traced to the cradle of Western civilization in the Mediterranean, in the margins of medieval texts, in Christian cathedrals of France, in the fields of England and Ireland, on church walls throughout Scandinavia and painted on drums of American native tribes. They have been found in India, Yugoslavia, Turkey, Spain, Wales, Peru and Italy. Some date back to 750BC.

Candles will be available after dark on Saturday. Walk the labrinth and place your candle within it.

Wagon Ride to Church:

Farmfest folk! We come from different paths and different beliefs. We also practice unconditional love, just like Jesus did. Here is a sweet opportunity for our Christian brothers and sisters AND for those that love to sing!

Going into a Sunday morning service is like walking into a time machine. One is transformed back in time to a place where the community either walked to church or came in buggies and wagons. The pews are built from the original cast iron frames with wooden seats and backs. Music is sung a cappella from the book of Psalms and the pulpit is simple and plain. Even the doctrine has been presevered and comes from the time of John Calvin, a prominent reformer of the mid 1500ís. Members are few in number these days, but strong in heart.

If you love old time worship and/or love to sing, this is a perfect event for you. The hymns are all a capella and in four-part harmony. Letís fill this beautiful church with beautiful Farmfolk voices, listen to an old time gospel rooted sermon and fellowship with a few local neighbors. Please join us.

Meet at the mail box in front the farmhouse at 10:15 am Sunday Morning. We will ride to the Hetherton Reformed Presbyterian Church (That pretty white church right around the corner on Meridian Line Road). Bible Study is at 10:00; Service is at 11:00.
