If you’re raising chickens or think you might add birds to your backyard in the near future, Chicken Chat at Moss Mountain Farm is for you. It’s ideal for everyone from small-scale chicken farmers to novices wanting a pet bird.
Event attendees will learn from P. Allen Smith about his heritage breed poultry and the importance of preserving these rare breeds. He’ll be on-site answering all of your burning questions and sharing his long-standing love for chickens.
Best of all, you can meet Allen and tour the grounds of Moss Mountain Farm and his garden home, which is the staging area for his Garden Home and Garden Style television shows. He will take you to Poultryville, and you will see how he feeds, nurtures, and protects his own flock of heritage breeds.
Lunch will be provided. You can even purchase chickens to take home and add to your flock! Reserve your spot today before they’re gone!
A Farm Tour & Lunch Includes:
- A guided tour through P. Allen Smith’s three-story Greek Revival-style home. Guests will learn about P. Allen Smith’s authentic design approach that pays homage to the history of the farm.
- Explore Arkansas’ beautiful countryside overlooking the Arkansas River while touring Allen’s Terrace Garden, the Hidden Rose Garden, Hydrangea Allée, and his one-acre Vegetable Garden.
- Connect to the land as you sit down to a farm-to-table lunch featuring a Seasonal recipe from P. Allen Smith’s book, Seasonal Recipes from the Garden. For dessert, enjoy a slice of Allen’s famous buttermilk pecan pie with homemade whipped cream.
- Last but certainly not least, a visit to Poultryville to meet the chickens and other animals. Learn about Allen’s effort to conserve America’s early poultry breeds and why he started the Heritage Poultry Conservancy. While you are there, say hi to your favorite farm animals from Allen’s television show—Trudy, Moose, Smudge & Squeak, just to name a few.
