Hand painted by your's truly, here is our brand new official farm sign for Helder~Herdwyck Farm! It was a family project for the posts, decoration and I am thrilled we got it installed last week, and we will be working on the landscaping this week, in time for Memorial Day! New, gold house numbers will be added. We are soaking the Morning Glory seeds for planting to climb the posts, and we have some petunias ready to plant. Stay tuned as our final details are installed!
