What? It's Mid July already?

And on that note...I've gotta get running!  It' already ten to 7 and time to get out and pack up the market truck!  This time of year, there never seems enough hours in the day to get it all done. 
But before I is the 100th year celebration for the Muzzall Family Farm, aka "Three Sisters Beef."  The Muzzall's are multi-generational Whidbey farmers and I've known their family since I was a kid in dairy 4-H.  They ran a dairy for years but several years ago (with the ongoing collapse of the dairy industry) switched over to grass-fed beef.  They know have a going concern with that business and are considered by many to have some of the finest beef products around!
So if you have a chance after markets today, swing by their farm for an old-fashioned, farm-style party!
Here is the invite from Shelley at Three Sisters...

Ron, myself, and the 3 Sisters would like to invite you to the farm this Saturday, to enjoy a tour around the farm, kids activities, education about the history of the farm, and trolley rides.  4-H members will be here to talk about their projects.  If you work up an appetite, a BBQ lunch will be available for purchase.
The 3 Sisters market will be open.  So don't forget your beef and eggs.  A portion of the proceeds will go to the 4-H program.
This event is this Saturday July 17th from 10-4pm.  938 Scenic Heights Road Oak Harbor 98277
Please pass this on to your friends and neighbors!
We hope to see you at the farm!
