Pumpkin Vine Dairy Queen: A Goat Pageant

August 11 @ 11:00 am - 2:00 pm

Join us on August 11th from 10am-2pm for a fresh take on an old tradition: The Crowning of the Pumpkin Vine Family Farm Dairy Queen!

(The Rain Date for this event is August 18th)

Goat dressed up in ribbons and greenery as a dairy queen!

In some states, she’s a human, but around here the goats steal the show. We are excited to crown our Second Pumpkin Vine Dairy Queen from among our hard-working, high-spirited, and undeniably beautiful herd of dairy goats.

Inspired by both Alpine and Indian traditions, we have planned a special day to celebrate these amazing animals, who give so much to so many. They’ve been working hard since the spring, producing milk for our goat cheese, yogurt, and smoothies. We want to recognize their efforts and celebrate our partnership with our furry, four-legged friends. We’ve been hard at work making glamorous outfits and trimming their hooves so they shine on their big day!

As part of our festive farmers market, we’ll have soft fresh Bavarian pretzels, smoothies and other treats for an al fresco lunch, and a very special puppet show from Barn Arts productions. Make a day of it, and take some time to celebrate the animals that give us all so much!

The Day’s Schedule:

11 – 12: Vote on your Favorite Dairy Princess from among this year’s doe kids and grab some snacks at the farmers market. Make your own willow crown and wand!

12:00 Goat Parade & Crowning of the Dairy Queens: Welcome the girls as they enter in their finery, and cheer the winners of this year’s special categories (Hint: personality matters too!)  We’ll have photo opps with all the winners afterwards, so bring your camera!
