Suwanee Whole Life Co-op -- Roastery Tour & Fry Farm Tour this Sunday!
It's not to late to join us this Sunday, April 24th to tour JavaGenesis Coffee Roasting and then visit Fry Farm! Looks like another gorgeous Sunday!
This will be an fascinating and educational tour for everyone – coffee drinkers and non-coffee drinkers! The roastery tour will educate you about the complete process that goes into a cup of coffee- from the small family farms that grow the beans to the art and science of roasting. You won't believe everything that is involved! This tour will start at 1pm at 741 Harry McCarty Road, Unit 102, Bethlehem, GA 30620. The roastery is about 40 minutes from Suwanee.
We're assuming the roastery tour will take roughly 1 1/2 hours and then we will head to Fry Farm. The farm is about 5 miles down the road at 590 Cross Ln NW Bethlehem, GA 30620. Fry Farm provides the co-op Certified Naturally Grown produce and this is a great time to see the farm since everything is coming up or being planted. The Fry family are such great stewards of their land and I'm so happy you'll get an opportunity to meet them. Please note this is a walking tour so wear comfortable shoes. They will have a golf cart if anyone can't walk for long periods of time. In addition, we will see the chickens and do some pole fishing for the kids!
NOTE TO FAMILIESWITHSMALLCHILDREN Kids are absolutely welcome to both tours and we think want them to have a great experience learning about local foods. At the roastery there will be large sacks of unroasted coffee beans and for little climbers it will be very tempting to climb on top of them. These bags weigh hundreds of pounds and we don't want anything to happen to your precious children so please make sure they don't climb the bags.
On the farm, please remember this is a working farm and supervise children at all times. Remain on designated walking paths. The farm has plots with new plantings and we want to make sure they don't get stepped on. They have chickens on the farm are very friendly and don't mind being petted but we ask that you make sure your kids are gentle when touching. When we go to the pond to fish please supervise them closely.
We are so happy the kids get this experience but want to make sure they are safe.
Also, weather looks great and should be pretty warm. Don't forget water and sunscreen.
