How should I dress?
Although we are “in the bush” we encourage you to dress for this “stush” experience as you would any other grand affair because we believe that the bush is just as beautiful as any ballroom. Dress for a cool breeze and a lot of earth. You may want to bring a light sweater or long sleeved shirt as it can be a tiny bit cool some days at the farm. Also note that if it's been raining it can be a little muddy so flip flops and heels may not be preferred.
