Victory Acres will be hosting our Third Annual Pie in July Event on Saturday, July 19th. The farm team is Super excited about this event, and we hope you'll plan to join us! Last year we had twenty-six pies entered into the pie baking contest and over 175 people enjoyed cooking workshops, bluegrass music, a carry-in meal, and--of course--pie! This year's event is shaping up to be just as great!
We offer you and any one else who wants to participate, a chance to make a pie and have it critiqued by our judges. Prizes will be awarded for four categories: Fruit, savory, gluten-free, and other.
The pies need to be made from scratch (including the crust).
On July 19th at 2:00 we will begin accepting pies at the farm. The judging will begin at 3:00. The fruits of your labor will be enjoyed at our carry-in meal at 5:30. Prizes will be awarded after the meal.
We are offering two workshops prior to the meal. At 3:00 you can learn the art of noodle making--just like grandma used to make.
At 3:30 Keith Hardin will talk about the "Back to Eden" method of gardening. It is a no till and no water method of gardening. This summer he is helping the City of Marion make community gardens on vacant lots using this method. It is a very interesting concept. Check out the website http://www.backtoedenfilm.com/ then come hear what he has to say about this exciting concept.
From 4:30-5:30 Farmer Terry will be offering hayride tours of the farm. You won't want to miss it!
At 5:30 we have the carry-in meal at the pavilion. Bring a covered dish, some lawn chairs, and enjoy the live entertainment of the Spurgeon Family Singers while you eat.
After the meal, the prizes will be awarded for the pie contest winners.
This is a free, fun-filled, family event. Please join us, and tell all your friends! We're looking forward to a really great time, and we hope to see you there!
In Christian Love,
Eric Himelick, Executive Director
