Visit a real, live family-owned working farm right here in East Texas, but even better than that, learn about natural, chemical-free livestock production and how it benefits you and the environment! Owners Matt and Jerica Cadman personally guide visitors, educating them on the health benefits of natural farming and how Matt was able to heal his body using real food grown locally with no pesticides, vermicides, herbicides, GMOs, etc. Have fun watching the chicken scratch in the field, the pigs wallow in the mud, and the cows graze on real green grass as you learn about innovative natural farming practices suited to East Texas.

33rd Annual Lindale Chamber of Commerce CountryFest
For Immediate Release-
Saturday, October 14, 2017, the Lindale Area Chamber of Commerce will host the biggest Country Fest ever in downtown Lindale at Blackberry Square. Since 1984, Lindale’s Country Fest has continued to entertain thousands of visitors and residents, with arts and crafts, games for the kids, great food, live entertainment, and much more!

Scheduled to begin at 8:30 a.m. will be the Harvest Hustle 5K presented by Longhorn Ford/Lonestar Dodge with a portion of the proceeds benefiting the LISD Education Foundation starting in downtown Lindale at Blackberry Square. The Harvest Hustle will begin in the heart of Lindale on Industrial Street, adjacent to the Lindale “Pickers Pavilion”. Runners will “get their legs under them” on the flat first half mile traveling through a residential area east on North Street, then turn north onto the challenging rural rolling hills of Iron Mountain Road! At the “half way” point, runners will enter the beautiful Trail Creek Farm and will travel into the farm, around the barn, out the gate and back onto Iron Mountain Road. The back stretch for runners will again be the rolling hills of Iron Mountain Road, to the west turn onto North Street for the half mile dash to the finish! Stay after the race for all of the activities of “Countryfest” in Lindale!
Following the Harvest Hustle 5K you can stroll through the arts and craft booths, gobble a turkey leg, take a look at the Longhorn Ford/Lonestar Dodge Car Display, and bid on auction items. Children will spend the day at a variety of activities including: The Texas Bank and Trust climbing wall, Lindale Police Department’s Kid’s ID Booth, and lots of carnival games provided by the First United Methodist Church.
Live Entertainment will kick off at 10:15 am and will conclude at 3:30 pm.
