The amazing Elaine, Lady Hill Proprietress, Mother of 9, and an original farm girl, missed having chickens and sheep on the farm so she called in the troops to pull together a Pop-Up Petting Zoo. It was a great way to kick off the Easter weekend and spring, officially. The kids became part of the pet menagerie while the adults sampled a line-up of perfect pairings for the Easter Buffet, including two new release wines:
An agrarian magister to Lady Hill proprietors, Elaine and Jerry Owen, Wendell Berry was the inspiration for the family to start converting ground to Organic 15 years ago. He continues to poetically inspire us as we strive to steward this piece of earth into the next generation. Hosting one of the only community screenings of Look & See: A Portrait of Wendell Berry, in the Pacific Northwest, we are now even more inspired to move our legacy forward in a meaningful way.
Dear Local Food and Drink Friends,
Elaine and I wanted to get the word out to the community about a film, a "portrait" of Wendell Berry, that we will be hosting at our winery located on my family's 6th generation farm near St Paul.
I have heard Berry speak, and have been listening to his quiet, sane voice since I was a college student in the '70s. Some of my friends visited him on his Kentucky farm back then as well. He has been an agrarian magister to both Elaine and me and was the inspiration for us to start converting ground to Organic 15 years ago. He continues to poetically inspire us as we strive to steward this piece of earth into the next generation.
We are stoked to have the opportunity to share this screening; please feel free to pass on to other eaters, readers, drinkers, and thinkers! Tickets here.
Jerry and Elaine Owen
