Today, we headed the the piney woods a few miles from our home for the Mossy Creek Barnyard Festival We try and go when it comes in the spring and fall. Many of the same vendors return each year. This year we bought honey, pecans, mayhew jelly, and homemade apple blueberry bread. We enjoyed the blue-grass music, walking around under the tall pine trees, the petting zoo, and of course, the vendors. Dan even signed up for a horse raffle. The winner gets the 3 year old horse (riden for 6 months) or $150. As Dan says, “… it’s a nice horse.” I hope he takes the money if he wins. The proceeds go to the Peach County FFA farm for feeding expenses.
Mossy Creek Barnyard Festival was named one of the Top 20 Events in the Southeast, and also one of the Top 100 Events in North America. Voted “Favorite Arts and Crafts Festival in Georgia.” They advertise the festival as “the way things used to be.”
