The event would not have been possible without the generous help and support of Tricia and Josh Sowers of Sowers Sustainable Farm
. From helping plant the front flower beds to refreshing all 14 hanging baskets to general farm clean up, event set-up, and managing everything that goes on behind the scenes at a big event like this, they were instrumental in making the event a success.
A special thanks goes out to Darren and Summer Wheeler of On Target Outdoors
for their invaluable contribution to the success of the event. Their assistance in getting the house organized, coordinating with caterers, and preparing and serving food and beverages played a vital role in ensuring everything ran smoothly.
We would like to extend our sincerest appreciation to Michael Hammack, Molly's brother, who spent many hours preparing the delicious brisket and garlic sausage we served. This is the second year Mike has stepped up to cook for the Farm Tour, and we couldn't be happier with the results. During the event, we had a "tip the grill master" jar out, but several of you asked if Mike had a Venmo. If you'd like to show Mike some appreciation, you can send him a tip on Molly's Venmo @Molly-Pantalone-1.
We were fortunate to have the support of Annie Burwell, our wonderful neighbor who generously offered to be our event photographer and medic. Her artistic skills were a valuable addition to the event, and we were lucky not to require her medical expertise.
We owe a debt of gratitude to Kimberly Hammack for her outstanding baking skills. She single-handedly prepared all of the delicious desserts for the event, and the fact that not a single crumb was left is a testament to her expertise. Kimberly's last-minute contribution of a diverse range of baked goods added the perfect finishing touch to the event.
The success of the event would not have been possible without the dedicated efforts and enthusiasm of our volunteers. We are immensely grateful for the time and energy they contributed to make it a success.
