Our first ever Harvest Party!
Sunday, September 25th we’ll be harvesting potatoes starting at 1pm and once we’ve dug in and gotten dirty, the real fun starts. We really hope you can make all or part of the party, especially if you haven’t made it out to the farm yet. Bring your kids! Bring your friends! Bring your friend’s kids!
If you can’t come for the activity portion of the day, we’d love to have you for the potluck.
1-4pm: Potato harvesting. Come help us dig up winter storage starch. The kids will love digging around and finding the biggest and best.
4pm: Potluck begins. Please bring a dish to share (your favorite fall fare!) along with a descriptive sign for our veggie and vegan friends. Signs can be as simple as “Squash Casserole: vegetarian” or as detailed as you wish.
Please bring your own plate and silverware.
Then comes the good stuff: rotten tomato toss, three leg-ed race, vegetable printmaking, cider pressing (if we have the apples to press), and hay ride. We’ll even have pumpkins to carve or paint to get you in the fall mood. We’ll have some music, but if you play an instrument, bring it! Jam sessions are highly encouraged.
If you want to stay the night, please do! There will be a designated camping area for you to set up tents.
We’re asking that your dogs stay home for the party.
If you need a ride, post on this event or shoot us an email. We want you to get here as much as you want to come!
Hope to see you there (directions below).

Directions to County Rail Farm from Missoula, MT
Take Hwy93 north towards Kalispell and Flathead Lake. Go North about 27 miles passing through the towns of Evaro and Arlee. Turn Left in Ravalli at the blinking light onto Hwy200 towards Hotsprings and the National Bison Range. Go a little less than 2 miles and turn left on Pommes de Terre Ln. It’s a small gravel raod which leads to wooden barn and tan house, that’s us. You will be able to see both from the road before you come to the turn-off. Park at the warehouse (the first building you come to) and walk up to the party. Call if you’re lost, our cell phones work just fine up there.
