Barberry FamrsHello Venture Outdoors Photography Walk Friends!
We hope you had a wonderful time walking around Barberry Farm earlier this month – and we hope your snapdragons are in full bloom. We loved looking at all of the photos you sent in for the contest – and we would be happy to see any other photos you would like to share!
We have the results of the Photo Contest – I will tell you the judges worked tirelessly on their selections!  (I kept pulling for the hysterical “geese aborting landing photo”, but the judges didn’t listen to me.)
1st place – Suni Lee – camera strap – congratulations!
2nd place – Chelsea Szost – gift certificate to Barberry Handmade gift shop 
3rd place – Kate Keech – Barberry Farm ballcap
Honorable Mention – Kate Keech
Take a look at the winning photos (and all other submissions) by clicking here.  Simply hover over each photo to see the photographer’s name – which may be yours!
(Suni, Chelsea, and Kate – please send me your mailing address so we can get your prizes in the mail!)
Please take a moment to join the Barberry Handmade and Barberry Farm FaceBook pages – your photos may show up as we show your excellent work to our friends.  I have a number of Nanci Goldberg’s and David Bennett’s photos on my personal FaceBook page – Friend me if you would like access. We had a great time hosting you at Barberry Farm.  Kirsten was happy to share her property and horses (and geese) with you – she mentioned that it was great to see the farm through others’ eyes.
Sign up soon and tell your friends about our August 15th Barberry Farm Hike – we will walk around additional parts of the farm (your cameras are definitely welcome!).  We are excited to hold another event at the ever-beautiful Barberry Farm – come along and see how the farm changes in the late summer:
 
Thanks for a wonderful day.  Happy Trails.
