We are just days away from the biggest thing that happens to our farm annually! I’m a little stressed and hoping everything comes together well (like it always does). Yet again, there have been some truly wonderful people who have come together to make this all happen. It’s no small task to get the grounds ready for the show and we greatly appreciate everyone’s help in that.

A huge thanks  to our many advertisers. Their continued (and new) support of our show is a tremendous blessing and we are honored to have these great people contribute to our event. And an even bigger thanks to Mr. Norman Durham with the buttons, the Joneses and their help with programs and all the ladies at The Perfect Image and their help with the shirts. One of the newest advertisers suggested we do a sponsor page and after the show, I plan to look into this wonderful idea. So check back, after the show when I can breathe again, to take a look at all the people who have helped make everything possible.

Just because we have a big event going on doesn’t mean we have let the farming stuff take a break. No. Mom, Dad and John DeCotis have been hard at work here getting the vegetables and muscadines tended to and picked, as well as the Christmas trees trimmed. That’s right… Christmas is next on our agenda. John has been hard at work and has trimmed most of the fields. This is not a fun job and I, for one, do not envy him this task.

As I finalize everything and get the last pieces sent off, I sit here hoping and wishing the weather will be wonderful this year, the vendors and exhibitors have a great time and the spectators have a blast while they’re here! That’s not too much to ask for, right??

We hope to see everyone out here next weekend and if you have any questions, comments or just want to drop in and say “Hey” then come by the registration office in the main building. That will be my little headquarters for the whole weekend! Hope to see you!
