Guilford: Harvest Day

Description: The farm is filled with activities for the entire family including an area dedicated to children's activities with the ever popular corn sand box, pumpkin painting, the bean bag toss, and hoop the pumpkin, along with face painting.
For those who like to watch demonstrations, there will be sauerkraut making in the Granary section of the barn and the blacksmith shop will be running all day. The New England Lace Group will be showing all comers how lace was (and still is!) made by hand. Corn grinding utilizing tractor power will also be on display. Soap making and a spinning demonstration will also occur. The Munger Barn will be the site for tours of our Native American Museum collection.
The farm has a variety of animals for viewing and includes a talk by Mark Dudley about our largest inhabitants, Bob and Dave, the oxen. They'll also be a few cows on display from Half Mile Acre Farm, and Barb Hammerlund will be available to answer any of your questions.
Want to take home a pumpkin? Just guess the weight and it's yours.
Available are the famous hot dogs, fresh chili, and refreshments available for purchase to help silence that appetite you'll work up walking around the farm. Also, collecting donations for the Guilford Food Bank with collection tubs located all around the Farm.
And for those who like old things (and the farm is loaded with old things), they'll be antique trucks, cars and tractors displayed around the grounds.
Come check out the Farmers' Market and get all your fresh food while enjoying the other activities taking place throughout the grounds.
So plan on coming to the Farm for a pleasant day of activities and as you stroll around you can enjoy the music by the Dudley Farm String Band.
