The Greathouse Butterfly Farm in Earleton produced its inaugural Festivus Butterfly festival April 6. Farm owner Zane Greathouse said he based the name of the event as well as many of the day’s activities on a Christmas holiday featured on the Seinfeld television show.

Katie Parrish, a four-year employee of the farm, points out a Julia Longwing butterfly.  Parrish said Longwings are native to Florida and only lay their eggs on Passion Vines.
