Art Behind the Barn

Art Behind the Barn is just that—art that's behind a barn.

Come to the Brookfield Farm tomorrow from 8 am to 1 pm (Saturday, July 14) for one of the sweetest summer art fairs in the Pioneer Valley. Whether it's sunny or rainy, you'll be comfortable, because the fair is set up in a sheltered lean-to behind the barn.

The Brookfield Farm is at 24 Hulst Road, just off Bay Road in South Amherst. Because of the roundabout construction at Bay Road and Route 116, the easiest way to get to the farm right now is to take South East Street to Bay Road, then turn left (east) and drive a few blocks to Hulst. There's a sign for the farm at Hulst.

Today I'm busy sewing up some journal covers for Art Behind the Barn. They fit standard Moleskin journals—I've got blank, lined, and graph paper journals for you to choose from. I'll also have lots of embroidered lavender sachets and potholders, too.

Little scraps, as well as old pants and skirts, come in handy for these covers ...

There's always lovely stuff on offer at Art behind the Barn—jewelry, note cards, hand knits, photography—all made by shareholders. And for cooling off, there's the farm's famous all-natural juice popsicles—so refreshing on a hot day.

Come on out and see one of the Pioneer Valley's friendliest and prettiest CSAs. Hope to see you there!

I'm so glad you posted about this, otherwise I would have missed it! I've already put my new journal to use. AND when I was at the cafe this morning, someone asked where I purchased it, so I passed along your information :)

That's cool, Heather! I will be adding journals to my Etsy shop as soon as I photograph them.
