Each year we open up the pastures and host two festivals that celebrate the changing of the seasons.
In October, when the foliage of our sugar maples is at its peak, the Harvest Festival features historic demonstrations such as broom and rope making, open hearth cooking, and blacksmithing. It’s also a time to try your hand at some traditional crafts like pumpkin decorating, cornhusk doll and grapevine wreath making, and beeswax candle rolling.
In mid-May the Founders’ May Fair is a time to welcome the return of the growing season. Our pastures come alive with Maypole dancing, Morris dancing, sheep shearing, sheep dog demonstrations, spinning, and other traditional crafts.
Each year we feature a special guest – in 2014 Brian Bradley from Sky Hunters in Flight returned to the farm with his majestic birds of prey! Stay tuned for 2015’s special guest.
