Poppins & Posies or Butterflies & Bee's Field Trip

August 9,2017 8:30am

374 Ray Hill Road,  Mills River, N.C.

This was a fun trip last year and close to home.  Let's shoot the dahlia's, butterflies and bees at Bob and Judy McLean's farm in Mills River.


It gets HOT this time of year so let's meet at 8:30 am at the old Food Lion in Mills River(132 Crossroad Dr. Mills River.)  This store is closed now and has plenty of parking.  Lets all meet here because parking is limited at the farm. Please have your release form filled out and signed before the trip.  This location is behind the Citgo gas station at the crossroads of Hwy 191 and 280.  We will take Hwy 280 towards Brevard to left on Ray Hill Road.  The farm will be on the left.  Let's shoot until 11:30 am, it should be getting pretty warm by then.


When we leave we will return to the closed Food Lion then continue on Hwy 280 to the sign for Sierra Nevada Brewing Co.(100 Sierra Nevada Way,  Fletcher, N.C.)   This will be our lunch stop.  Afterwards we can take the self-guided tour inside the brewery.  The only difference between a guided tour and a self tour is there are no samples of beer.  There is plenty to purchase at the restaurant and gift store.   We can also tour the outside grounds behind the restaurant.  As always join us at any part of the field trip.

As with all of our field trips, we require a completely filled out Release Agreement for each person attending our organized events. It is important that you have it downloaded, printed and filled out before you leave home so we will not be holding up our departure from the old Food Lion meet up site.
