Farm Festival

Do you think you rustle up the best chili on the Northshore? Is your cornbread world-class?  Did you miss your calling to be farmer?

We are hosting an October harvest celebration for the record books. The Fall Festival will have events for adults and children, including a Chili Cook-off, a Cornbread Bake-off, a Women’s Nail Driving competition, a Men’s Bale Toss, Pumpkin Decorating, and Bobbing for Apples. Participants will also be able to take a tour of our fall garden and greet our Shetland sheep.

Local craft brewers, Down the Road Brewery, will also be hosting tastings of their Puckwudgie American Pale Ale, Dreamtime New England IPA, and a seasonal surprise! If you have never been to Down the Road, take a look at their selection and amazing artwork.
