Event Description

A view of cows munching on fresh field grass, happy-as-can-be-tail-wagging donkeys, a pack of wild farm goats jumping around, sheepishly cute sheep baa-ing as you pass by, bees buzzing (from a distance) & a horde of chickens and ducks chirping & quacking you on! Introducing... St. Joseph's first annual Fat Cow 5k! This 5k farm-raiser is being held on the farmstead trails that pass wild blackberry bushes, summer wildflowers in bloom, growing watermelon in our Hunger Relief garden, all the fresh fruit & vegetables growing on our land & in our community gardens. Did we mention all the farm animals as official race spectators in this fun run?!

About St. Joseph's: St. Joseph farmstead is a 56,000 SF historic building and 63 acre property in North Little Rock that is on the National Register of Historic Places. St. Joseph's is also a designated Arkansas Century Farm. As an independent nonprofit, St. Joseph operates as a farm with a mission to preserve the historic property through sustainable agriculture & food production, programs that educate & promote agritourism, & support community outreach. With over 30 artist studios, an event venue, renovated commercial kitchen space, beer shed, & a year-round farmstand store selling local and organic foods, there is A LOT going on at St. Joseph's. Come see for yourself & be a part of history at our first 5k FARM-raiser.

The Course: The course will include both trail and road/pavement. The trails include soft grass, rocks and pine, and the crossing road will be manned for safety. Special thanks to Americorps NCCC & Central Arkansas Master Naturalists who helped to create these trails on the farmstead.
