Who knew? 🙂

Here’s the update: Emily will be teaching classes and closing this beast (the gym) down at Noon both days. The one afternoon class each day is cancelled 🙁 Sorry if this messes anyone up!

On another note: check out our GrassFed Beef Buddies up in Winthrop! Here’s what they sent me:

Crown S Ranch Annual Farm Tour, BBQ and Potluck – FREE

At Crown S Ranch, we sustainably produce beef, pork, poultry, lamb and organic eggs on our lush, organic pastures using management-intensive pasture rotation, sometimes called grass farming. We combine old fashioned values with innovative modern technology. Come see our solar powered chicken trains, passive fly traps, nutrient cycling compost facility, solar powered mobile hen houses and more.

Tour: Learn more by taking a tour with owners Jennifer and Louis or kids can tour with Icel Sukovaty (age 10). Tours begin at 10:00am, 1:00pm and 3:00pm, leaving from the food and producer area – #7 Twin Lakes Road. Park at the schools across the street and walk over.

Connect: Meet other Methow Valley food producers including, Sunny Pine Farms Goat Cheese, Mazama Juice, Blue Star Coffee Roasters, Mazama Store and Methow Valley Ciderhouse. Some producers will have samples and products available. All Crown S Ranch products will be available for purchase.

Eat Lunch, Enjoy Music:
At noon, we will be BBQing and serving our beef, pork and poultry for lunch. Everyone is encouraged to bring a Potluck side dish especially veggies, greens or fruit to balance the meats. Hopefully music will be happening during the lunch hour.

Be prepared: Please bring a potluck dish, a blanket or chairs to sit on for lunch if you’d like and wear comfortable shoes appropriate for walking through sometimes dewy pastures. Be prepared to have fun, eat well and learn a whole lot!

Stay: If you’re coming from out of area, ask about our on-ranch ‘Haycation’ cottage http://www.crown-s-ranch.com/downloads/haycation.pdf or check out www.centralreservations.net for other Methow Valley accommodations. Great restaurants, recreation and camping are all nearby.

Fine Print: All people are welcome, please leave dogs at home. Parking is across the street at the schools unless you need to be closer, boys will direct you. Call or email with further questions. We hope to see you then!

This is sure to be really cool, Carrie, I and the dudes eat 100% Crown – S – Ranch Beef, I enjoy the heck out of it and know that it makes us healthier, smarter and fitter (I mean, have you ever even seen me workout!?). I’m teaching in Renton with Abi (!!) and therefore cannot make it, but I’m bummed about it!
