May Farm Tour at Congaree & Penn

May Farm Tour at Congaree & Penn

     I hope everyone had a great weekend, I surely did. Got to take the boys to Marvel Universe Live show. Headed down to Elkton, Fl on Saturday to visit Rype & Readi Farm & Market. Sunday morning I visited Congaree & Penn farm for their May Farm Tour.

     It was a beautiful day to take a tour and learn about what Congaree has been up to lately. Farmer Scott talked to everyone about grafting trees and how the long it takes some of the trees to fully grow. He also talked about the rice fields and grueling process it takes to harvest rice. Danny, another employee of Congaree, showed us some of the equipment and talked about beekeeping. The group also go to see the various equipment that goes into making Congaree & Penn's new Shrub drink.

     All in all it was a great day. Nothing like walking around the farm on a beautiful day, learning, taking pictures and hanging out with Lula & Seabiscuit. If you haven't had a chance to try some of Congaree's products. You can check them out at local farmers markets throughout the week or you can head to, www.congareeandpenn.com to shop online and to see their upcoming schedule.
