Only once did I host an Open House . . . . where food was supplied.
It was 1992, and we advertised a Farm in several local papers; put out all kinds of directional signs; strung carnival flags and balloons; the Owner made a couple gallon Pitcher of Punch, an Urn of Coffee, and laid out plates of hors d'oeuvres and her own personally baked goods.
We sat there for 2 or 3 hours, and the only people to show were two elderly Brothers who grew up in the place when their Father farmed it . . . . they enjoyed seeing how the place had changed over the prior decades. I guess I was happy for them.
Luckily no homeless . . . . still, never did that again !
