Gal Pal Get-Away Days
Flee to the farm
Tired of only connecting virtually? Craving some time to relax, reconnect in person, enjoy great food and drinks, and explore a serene beautiful space with your favorite friends? Want to do all of this in a socially-distanced, safe way?
Join us for a “Gal Pal Get Away” at Wicked Walnut Farms in North Branch, just north of Lapeer. We’re located just 50 minutes from downtown Flint. The goals of the day are simple—reconnect, breathe, relax with friends, enjoy the space, and great food. We’ll feature a different workshop each month for part of the day with plenty of time to wander and visit built in.
Advanced registration is required and limited to 12 people for July and August. We will provide hand sanitizer, masks, and a single-person bathroom with hand-washing. Our tables and chairs are all socially-distanced, and there is ample space to move around.
- Registration is required and limited to 12 people.

Enjoy our Farm-to-Table brunch featuring dishes made from fresh eggs, fresh goat cheese, fresh fruits and vegetables, and an assortment of meats raised right here on our farm. Choose from coffee, tea, infused water, mimosas, or Bloody Mary’s to enjoy with your meal. All food will be plated with your selections ahead of time to meet new COVID-19 restrictions and guidelines from the State. All food preparation will be done with masks and gloves, taking every safety precaution to ensure your safety.
Take a tour of Wicked Walnut Farm to learn the history of our 1860’s homestead, get the lay of the land, meet the animals, and see what we’re up to. We’re always adding new projects!
July 18 or 25
Mindfulness & Inner Calm Yoga Flow: Immerse yourself in being present, to listen, to practice, to discover. First, we will discuss the ‘what’ and ‘why’ of Mindfulness; set intentions to create a valuable experience; and take a moment to breathe together. Then, enjoy a delightful yoga practice designed to cultivate flexibility, reduce stress, and enhance energy. Inner Calm Yoga Flow integrates mindfulness, conscious breathwork, slow-focused movements, and longer, still poses. Your instructor will provide guidance and support throughout the sequence. This practice will leave you feeling energized and refreshed!
We will provide sanitized mats, or you are more than welcome to bring your own.
Led by In2Yoga Studio of Lapeer
