On the first weekend in May we host our annual Run For the Cows. This is our largest event, attracting 1,000 runners (selling out in 2 hours this year) for three races: a half-marathon, seven-miler, and the “Piglet Prance” for the youngest runners. Over 3,000 members and friends of the Farm participate as runners, volunteers, and spectators.
Every two years we host a wonderful Art Show, featuring work from many talented area artists depicting the farm and other natural areas of the community.
Every other June the farm and members of the Redding community host the Hunt for the Hens, a wonderful coop tour displaying coops of all shapes and sizes.
Evey three years we partner with the Redding Garden Club to showcase many beautiful private gardens during our Garden Tour.
Each September we host our wonderful Golf Outing fundraiser at the Redding Country Club
Each year we celebrate the end of the harvest with a wonderful Harvest Dinner, with food wonderfully prepared by area chefs using produce straight from the farm.
In October, when the foliage of our sugar maples is at its peak, we open up the pastures to celebrate the changing of the season with the Harvest Festival featuring 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, corn-husk doll and grapevine wreath making, beeswax candle rolling, and more. Each year we also bring in a beautiful team of Percheron draft horses to give wagon rides around the pastures.
