Back to Basics at the Centerburg Farm Festival

With record attendance, the Centerburg Ohio farming Festival was a weekend thrill. It told me loud and clear that people are getting back to basics! The Arts and Crafts area was full of exhibitors and attendees, it was hard to even get our son into the animal petting zoo, and the homemade ice cream line went on for miles.

Our friend's son and daughter entered the sunflower contest (for real!) The biggest sunflowers you've probably ever seen - there were hundreds of entries! Our friends other daughter loves horses so much, that she volunteered at the horse/pony ride area the entire weekend! Um, there was even a tractor parade! Ironic, that we ran into one of Simon's Team members spending the day there with her family too! It appears that families are spending more time together getting back to the basics -eating organic, riding bikes, shopping at farmer's markets, and spending time together "hobbying". It's good to see... good to see and really good to live. My favorite part was the homemade ice cream! An Older married couple used this John Deere equipment to make homemade ice cream and it was delicious!

Ohio is the heart of it all, and Centerburg is the geographic center of Ohio. It's a rural, tiny town, about an hour north of Columbus of which many people have not heard. It's worth checking out during next year's Farming Festival in September. This is NOT a paid endorsement ;)

Coincidentally, we have tractor stamps and brads in our store: Click on their photos for links. These tractor stamps sell well for us, another reinforcement that people are getting back to the basics. In case you are interested, we have lots of other rubber stamps in stock too.
