What a beautiful Spring it is shaping-up to be here at Bloomsbury Farm! We have had some great
spring rains, and the temperatures are finally starting to rise! Farmer Dave has been out planting corn in the fields, and can’t wait for the soil to dry out a bit so he can get out there again! Soon it will be time to plant the soybeans as well!
Back here at the Farm, we are in the process of finishing-up our Gift Shop! If you visited us last Fall, I’m sure you noticed that we built a beautiful new Sugar Shack and Gift Shop, complete with an office and kitchen! This Spring we are giving it a fresh coat of paint, as well as putting up some lovely pine trim in the office and rest rooms. The guys are in there installing the air conditioner as we speak (boy, I can’t wait for that this summer!). Once the “construction” work is done, we will give everything in there a good scrub-down, and get it put back together! We are so thankful that we were able to build that last year. The space in the Gift Shop has many uses – we are even able to host parties for up to 75 people in there – because it is the only building on the Farm that is climate-controlled.
Another thing you may have noticed if you visited Bloomsbury Farm last year, is that we built The ZIP, our 1200-foot zip line! Riders of all ages (as long as they weigh between 60 and 250 pounds) love soaring 60 feet in the air, across a pasture, creek, and cornfield! The ZIP actually has two lines running each direction, so you can even fly side-by-side with your friends! At just $20 per person, The ZIP makes for a great afternoon thrill-ride! If you’d like to take flight on The ZIP, visit our website at www.FlyTheZip.com and make your reservation today!
Some other exciting news: Bloomsbury Farm will be OPEN on the Weekends this Summer!! The Farm playground, as well at The ZIP, will be open from 11am-4pm every Saturday and Sunday now through August! You don’t even need to make a reservation to fly The ZIP if you come out during these times! We’ll be here to accommodate groups of any size! Admission to the Farm is $4 per person, and a flight on The ZIP is just $20 per person!
We are looking forward to lots of Graduation Parties, Birthday Parties, and even a couple of Weddings at the Farm this Summer! We have a beautiful venue for any event you can imagine! Feel free to contact us for more information about hosting your next party at Bloomsbury Farm!
Well, that’s all for now! I hope you all have a farm-tastic day!
