Foun­da­tion’s first event

Rappahannock News - - COMMENT. -

The Neiswanger Foun­da­tion at High Meadow Farm in Flint Hill is geared to­wards the preser­va­tion of car­riage driv­ing, fox hunt­ing, and her­itage breeds. We hope to be­come a sus­tain­able non-profit or­ga­ni­za­tion that is able to of­fer ser­vices to chil­dren that could other­wise not af­ford to ride/drive and ex­pe­ri­ence farm life. We be­gan our jour­ney at High Meadow just this past sum­mer and have sev­eral events planned for 2018.

That be­ing said, we are hav­ing an Easter Egg Hunt March 31 at noon. This event is free to the pub­lic and we are hop­ing to have a large turnout and just a re­ally fun time for every­one.

Our plan is: Sev­eral dif­fer­ent egg hunt ar­eas for dif­fer­ent age groups/dif­fi­culty lev­els (in­clud­ing a teenage/adult area); Bun­nies, baby goats, and lamb area (pos­si­bly baby cows as well); Hope­fully a food ven­dor/snack bar; Car­riage Rides around the prop­erty that can be re­served ahead of time (for a re­duced fee); Eggs will have candy prizes and some will even have free lessons (driv­ing and rid­ing) within!

This will be our first pub­lic event (that is not an ac­tual horse show) and we are hop­ing you could help us get the word out. We are open to hav­ing ven­dors on-site (in ex­change for help get­ting the word out through fliers/ posters/etc or through a spon­sor­ship). We have a 125x200-foot in­door arena that could ac­com­mo­date ven­dors (or tons of room out­doors as well). AMY MUNGAN Neiswanger Foun­da­tion High Meadow Farm
