Special Events

The farm hosts public events every year to bring family, friends, and community together to share in the organic farm experience. Come enjoy a pancake breakfast and learn about the farm’s maple sugaring practices at Maple Magic. Enjoy an old fashioned fair and hayrides at Spring Spectacular. Treat yourself to the best farm to table experience at the Harvest Dinner, the farm’s gala and annual fundraiser for the teen programs.
