  1. I wanted to thank you for this post. I ended up going to both Schifferstadt’s Oktoberfest and the Family Festival at the farm. It was a great Saturday. I wouldn’t have known about those things if it wasn’t for FMO. 😉

    Here’s a roundup of the farm festival for those who are interested, it comes from a rather different perspective, but you’ll get the idea. (
