On September 23, 2017, Carolina Blogging members from across the states met at Odom Farming Company Inc in Goldsboro, North Carolina to support the farm on their opening day of “Fall on the Farm“. Here are a few highlights from the meet & greet.
Odom Farming Company Inc was picked by Melissa of Adventures of Frugal Mom as our Fall meet & greet location. The farm often has several events going throughout the year and opening day of “Fall on the Farm” gave Carolina Blogging members a unique opportunity to meet, network and blog about the farm to their friends, family and readers. Melissa is also close friends of Odom Farming Company Inc owners and she and her daughters, Maddie and Mikaela have all worked on the farm.

Christmas Cards for the Troops
A new Christmas tradition adopted by Adventures of Frugal Mom and Carolina Blogging in honor of Melissa’s dad, Christmas Cards for the Troops provides an opportunity to write cards to send to service members who will be away from their families during the holiday season. We started collecting cards at our 2016 fall event and look forward to extending this activity in to future events to benefit the troops. The 2016 cards were sponsored by Hallmark and 2017 cards were donated by Sarah of Carolina Blogging and Melissa of Adventures of Frugal Mom. Bloggers were encouraged to address a few cards while visiting the farm and activities for Carolina Blogging members will be held throughout October and November of 2017. We hope to double last years card count for the 2017 Christmas season.
Odom Farming Company Inc Scavenger Hunt
Scavenger hunt activities were planned to have bloggers moving throughout the farm and exploring all that it had to offer. Some scavenger hunt favorites were to snap a selfie with Clementine the rescue goat, find the “CB” pumpkin in the pumpkin patch, snap selfies with other Carolina Blogging members and to figure out the punkin’ chunker. Bloggers who participated in the scavenger hunt were entered in to a drawing to win one of 7 door prizes donated by various meet & greet sponsors. Our official hashtag for the Odom Farming Company Inc. meet & greet was #OdomFarmNC and social media posts were shared on Instagram and Facebook.
The Odom’s treated bloggers to a smore’s bar with all the fixin’s around a camp fire. Fixin’s included Hershey’s milk chocolate bars, marshmallows, graham crackers and Reese’s peanut butter cups. Because this was a family friendly event, family members were able to relax and enjoy a bite to eat around the camp fire while talking with other bloggers.
