Howard County Con­ser­vancy, Mt. Pleasant

It’s har­vest time:  ideal for the annual, old fash­ioned Fall Fes­ti­val at the Con­ser­vancy!  Watch black­smiths ham­mer­ing iron in their shop, lis­ten to blue grass music, join the square dance, and explore the his­toric three-century-old farm.  Visit our pygmy goats, the chick­ens, Onyx the snake, and Ranger the barred owl.  There are children’s crafts, pump­kin dec­o­rat­ing and pony rides.  Browse the craftsmen’s sta­tions to admire chair can­ing, wool­spin­ning, wood­turn­ing, gourd dec­o­rat­ing, hands-on arche­o­log­i­cal demon­stra­tions and more. Admire the alpaca fam­ily and the gor­geous knit and woven prod­ucts made from their soft, super-warm wool.  Leap the hay bales.  Stock up on grass-fed beef and pork and the finest fall veg­eta­bles and fruit at the farm stand.  Food and bev­er­ages avail­able to pur­chase.  For this busy event, please leave your pets at home. Check web­site if weather is uncer­tain.  Please note that each ‘ticket’ is $10/car.  Sim­ply pur­chase one ticket per car that is attend­ing upon arrival at the event. No advance reg­is­tra­tion needed. 

Green Tip

Light soy candles.The oil byproducts in most candles can’t hold a flame to options like soy, since they burn longer and take less of a toll on the planet.
