I think the best part of the festival is meeting all of you who come and share with us your stories and testimonies. I wish we could remember all of your names because each one of you are special to us and we thank you for being a part of our lives. One after the other, you came and shared your appreciation for the work we do.
There was so much to see at the festival this year and this year we learned a great deal from the visitors to our booth as well as talking to fellow vendors. The Baker Creek Heirloom Seed company is so gracious to open up their doors to so many people and we totally saw the hard work they put into making this an enjoyable experience for so many. We arrived on Friday and their staff were hard at work at clearing additional pasture space of scrub brush for parking before sunset.
I got to talk to many of their volunteers and they were just as excited to be a part of this event as the attendees and vendors. It’s truly a family friendly event and in today’s world, that is becoming increasingly rare to find.
The video below is just a compilation of different footage that we recorded over the two day festival. We arrived on Friday and spent a day of rest camping in one of their pastures. When Sunday morning rolled around, we were first at the gate at just before 5am. We quickly set up our booths and before we knew it, the crowd was rolling in. We sold a lot of seeds and other products and talked to so many people. By the end of the two days, we were truly exhausted.
If you live anywhere in the midwest, this is a spring event you don’t want to miss. We hope we will see you next year at the Baker Creek Spring Planting Festival. Enjoy the video!
