 In 2015  We will be having two Open Houses.  One Saturday and Sunday June 27th 28th and one Columbus Day Weekend.  As soon as we figure out the June dates, I’ll be sure to let you know.  Thanks for coming to all the previous Bedlam Farm Open Houses.

Our June Open House will be a celebration of Art and Poetry.  So far we have artists Rachel Barlow, who you might know from her blog Picking My Battles.   She’ll have greeting cards, and magnets of her cartoons Hugging-Yoga Doodles. Carol Law Conklin will be showing and selling her batiks based on Nature, horses, and myths.  Jack Metzger, owner of Jack’s Out Back Gallery and Antiques.  Kim McMillan and her felted purses.  Karen Heenan’s children’s dresses made from repurposed tablecloths and linens. My sister, Fran Welge’s Mini Gardens, and me and Jon of course.

Then there are the Poets.  Reading their work and selling their books.  Mary Kellogg will be there with her new poetry book “How to Dance.  And Doug Anderson, his latest book is “Medicine Horse”.   Tom Adkins will have his latest book  and Kate Rantilla will be there with her first book.

And of course, Jon and Red will be herding the sheep and you can meet the donkeys Lulu and Fanny.   Flo will not doubt be in many laps and the hens will be pecking around looking for bugs and things to eat. Also, Frieda will make an appearance with Jon, as usual.


While you’re here, visit the town of Cambridge NY, just 5 minutes away.   There’s big stuff happening in town over the weekend,  It’s garage sale day and many of the stores will have sidewalk sales.   You can visit Connie and Marilyn at Battenkill Books .  Have Breakfast, Lunch or coffee and dessert at the Round House Cafe.   Visit the Cambridge Artisian Market and Hubbard Hall Store.  Don’t miss Heather at the bead shop, Over the Moon Beads, which sells more than just beads (as if that isn’t enough).  And all the Antique shops .

And if you like Consignment shopping don’t forget to visit Nikki and Vicky at NV Unique Boutique and Consignments, just down the street from Jacks Out Back Antiques. You can also have breakfast or lunch at Country Girls Diner on Main Street and get good food and snacks at the Cambridge Co-op.
