We had a wonderful time hosting folks from the 2017 New Holstein Super Cub Fly In this past weekend! Thank you to all the Supercub.org pilots, their families and friends, and to our community members for visiting our farm! It was an honor to host you all. Our 97-year-old grandmother, Margret, the farm matriarch, especially enjoyed watching the planes land in our pastures. Maybe by next year’s fly in Robert Klessig will have made those bumper stickers that say, “Real pilots have cow manure on their wheels”!
On Sunday, March 23, 2014 we hosted our first Maple Flapjack Brunch, a fundraiser for the Cleveland Firefighters. Guests came to the Heritage Barn on our farm to enjoy homemade pancakes, maple sausage links, milk, hot apple cider, coffee and pure maple syrup made on the homestead! Many guests took a walk down to the sugar shack to see the maple syrup make process and try fresh hot maple syrup! As this was our first time hosting a maple flapjack brunch, we expected about 300 people. We were pleasantly surprised when the final numbers came in after all was said and done: We hosted about 600 people and served brunch to 473. Our guests ate 1090 flapjacks, 1440 maple links, 4.5 gallons of maple syrup, and 14 gallons of apple cider. We are excited to be better prepared next year!
