About the Event

Join us to kick off Open Creamery Weekend in Maine with a special gathering on Saturday of the long weekend. Often when the season switches gears from summer to fall, we dial up the pace and leave our undressed summer hearts behind. This retreat will be a reminder that we can take the best of summer with us into cold months and still focus on moving, eating and thinking in healthy, life-affirming ways that fuel our spirit. 

12:45-1 Check in Please pull all the way in and park behind the barn. 

1:00-2:00 Yoga in pasture led by Kelly. Sunflower Farm’s Nigerian Dwarf goat herd will be invited to join the practice. Likely they will meander around the edges of the yoga pasture. Bring a mat if you have one, we will have some extras. 

2:00-2:15 Bagel & Goat Cheese Break

2:15-3:00 Workshop Options

Option #1 Reflective Writing with Hope Hall: What does your inner voice sound like? What is it saying? Leave with a fun piece of writing as a reminder for when you get busy and the noise of life begins to drown out the part of yourself who most deserves to be heard.

Option #2 Seasonal Self Care with Kelly Rich: Do you have a daily self-care routine? Does it shift with the seasons?  We will dive into an Ayurvedic daily regimen to enhance and cleanse the six senses, along with tips for an autumn detox! 


3:00-4:00 Goat Snuggling & Cheese Making Rotation  Spend Half an hour in the cheese kitchen mixing up your own chevre and learning a bit about cheesemaking with Hope. Then head out to the pasture for some goat time. Lila and Chris will be happy to answer all your goat keeping questions, or you can have Kelly take your picture with your favorite goat friend! 

4:00-4:15 Running of the goats and Seasonal Farm Treat 

4:15-4:30 Barn Meditation led by Kelly & Hope

{After you have had a great day at the farm, consider returning for the farm’s Open Creamery Celebration on Sunday from 10-3. There will be a number of women-owned, dairy-related businesses set up for a mini farmer’s market in the driveway, and Locally Sauced Food truck will be serving up a delicious lunch -- burritos with Sunflower Farm chevre. A collection of varied Creameries open their door around the state. If you head to the Maine Cheese Guild website you can download a map and see how many you can see in a day.}

About the Organizer

The Organizers: As an English teacher, Sunflower Farm Creamery Owner, contributing writer for Zest Magazine and yoga teacher, Hope Hall believes her passion for all these jobs is rooted in her desire to see connections instead of barriers. She is happiest mucking around the barn in farm boots, watching baby goats play, making cheese late at night in the cheese kitchen or practicing yoga with a big fun group of people in the field. As a new grandma, Hope is eager to show that we can be strong and bold at any age and is fueled by the belief that there are endless opportunities for reinvention and connection with others if we remain open to them. www.sunflowerfarm.info *****Kelly Rich is on a constant quest for sharing her heart through teaching, writing and storytelling.
