    EVENT ADDRESS 1200 State Highway 184, Heuvelton, NY 13654 MY PHONE! 315-869-1131. Please call to reserve a spot if selling. Each person selling will be charged $5 to help cover the expense of the event. Everyone else has free entry.

    So, here's the semi official post, well as official as I'm capable of being [​IMG] Anyway, and so begins the planning for the Northern NY (Northeast regional) chickenstock of 2011. As many of you know I volunteered to do it this year on my new farm in Heuvelton NY in the historic Thousand Islands region of Northern NY. I am way up here in Amish country, but hotels and B&B's are available. At this point I will have some alternate housing for peoples birds, but PLEASE keep in mind they will NOT BE behind closed doors. I don't have my morton building yet. If this changes between now and the event I will make everyone aware. This event will go on rain or shine! So, if it rains bring your muck boots ans prepare to get muddy and have some fun [​IMG]

    I will need as much help as possible and will be seeking sponsors for the raffle as is the usual custom. Any donations to the auction would be greatly appreciated.

    This is a one day event but will be held on a Saturday instead of a Sunday. Hope you can attend!
    I'm going to start listing housing possibilities. There are more I'm sure but it will depend on if you want Hotel or Camping or B&B..

    ATTENTION: I do not mean this to sound offensive, snarky or rude. I am asking this out of respect for everyone attending and the health and safety of their flocks. PLEASE DO NOT BRING ANY BIRDS WHO APPEAR TO BE SICK. I have the right to deny you entrance to my farm on threat of bio-security to the other animals present on the farm. If you bring ill, poorly attended birds I may ask you to leave regardless of how far you have driven. - Thank-you.

    Quote:Girl, you need to convince your parents to take you up there. This will be #3 for us and the last two were a BLAST! Plus you'll get to put some faces to names and make some new friends.

    As is tradition... I'll be covering the lunch/bbq. I have a few ideas and some tricks up my sleeve related to this. Need to see what strings I can pull. I'd like to add that dishes to pass are ALWAYS welcome.

    I also would like to encourage any of you that are crafters to bring your wares to sell. I'd like to make this a chicken swap/meet as well as a bit of a farmers market. Some of my local Amish neighbors are invited and I hope they will bring baskets and their other wares.
