We believe that the parent has the best interests of their children at heart. We believe that the parent is the first and only teacher that a child needs. In keeping with this philosophy, we wish to be a very hands-off cover school and allow the parent to lead and guide their children in the direction and at the pace they feel is best suited to their children. We ask only for what the law requires while offering support along with quality resources to aid families in their efforts.

Aug. 24, Cullman: Farm Ya'll Festival


Ag statistics are out…Cullman is still the #1 agriculture county in Alabama and we think it is high time we celebrated that fact. 

August 24th the first annual “Farm Y’all – Farm to Fork Festival” will be held at the Festhalle Market Platz – Farmer’s Market in the warehouse district of downtown Cullman. The festival will begin at 8:00 am and last until 3:00 pm. 

The “Farm Y’all – Farm to Fork Festival” will feature a giant pumpkin and watermelon competition with growers coming from several southern states to show off their mammoth fruit. Last year a local farmer, Trent Boyd shattered the Alabama state giant pumpkin record with his 885 pound monster. We could see a ½ ton pumpkin this year. Local farmers will be on hand with a good supply of local fruits and vegetables and vendors will have BBQ chicken, corn on the cob, tomato sandwiches and homemade ice cream.

Several regional and nationally celebrated chefs including Frank Stitt of Highlands Bar and Grill, Cliff Holt of Little Savannah, Chris Hastings of Hot and Hot Fish Club and Dyron Powell of Dyron’s Low Country and local chefs including, Matt Heim with All Steak Restaurant, Blue Moose CafĂ© & Brew Pub and Rumors Deli, will be preparing dishes featuring local foods for people to sample. The chefs will hang around and autograph books and answer questions. 

Come enjoy great bluegrass and country music, cow pie bingo, and let the kids participate in some of the old timey games.

The Cullman County Museum will be open and the Cullman County Extension office will be conducting several seminars on everything from making baby food from the garden, to cooking local and starting your own fall garden. 

Several sponsors will be exhibiting their products including our title sponsor Tri-Green Equipment who will bring some beautiful John Deere equipment.
