Rain barrel raffleRain Barrel Raffle keeps our spirits up!

Hand-painted 60-gallon rain barrel hand-painted by award winning artist James Gallagher. Tickets are 5 for $20, available online HERE!

While we miss the beauty and camaraderie of the Bluebell Festival at Merrimac Farm, we don't want to lose sight of our annual Rain Barrel raffle. Hand-painted by award winning artist James Gallagher, once again he's outdone himself with the best art ever.

Normally we spin the raffle barrel and randomly select the winning ticket at the Bluebell Festival, which was not an option this year. So in the spirit of perseverance, we're going to host the raffle online.

Tickets are sold in groups of 5 for $20. We'll pick the winner on Saturday, May 1, at 11am. Join us on Facebook Live!
