Mills River Day 2019

After a few years of taking a break on Mills River Day, our team decided to bring it back! We weren’t sure how successful it would be, but we had high hopes and sure enough, the community was in full support of the whole entire day!

It was an unusually hot May day, but we had over 2,000 people come out and support all of what Mills River has to offer! Huge thanks to all of our sponsors who helped make this incredible day happen (list below). Also, we had some amazing vendors, delicious food trucks on hand and incredibly talented and local bands preform for us throughout the day! More than twenty booths decorated our farm to help teach about everything from soil and water conservation to fun things to do around here to agriculture!

This year we even teamed up with local non-profit, Run828, to host the Mills River Family Mile! We started with a mile race around the farm with kids and then had a second one for their parents! Each racer was awarded with a prize after crossing the finish line!

With such a wonderful turn-out, we plan to keep this going for the years to come. We hope to have it around the same time each year, so come next May we hope to see you all here!
