NEWS FROM THE EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR

MARCH 17, 2020

Dear Friends and Neighbors: 

Difficult times call for difficult measures. Today we find ourselves in the midst of a public health crisis that our founder, Dr. Edwin C. Remick, could have only imagined, having assumed that the advances in modern medicine had eradicated such a serious threat to his community and country.

In order to protect both our staff and visitors, the Remick Country Doctor Museum & Farm is closing our buildings to the public effective immediately. All programs, meetings, tours, and gatherings have been postponed or canceled in accordance with CDC guidelines and the New Hampshire advisories. This is an evolving situation and as things change, we will post on social media and our website. At this time we are hopeful to be open sometime in April.

For the time being, we are making our farm products available to you on a pre-order basis with curbside pick-up and limited delivery within Tamworth and Sandwich. If you wish to place an order of meat, eggs, and/or maple products contact us at 603-323-7591 or email jgardner@remickmuseum.org. Our current schedule for pickup is Wednesday, Friday, and Saturday from 10:00 am to noon. Preferred payment is by credit card or check.

Although the buildings are closed, we encourage our community to practice safe social distancing on our grounds once the weather improves. The Binsack Trail will be open and you will see our animals out and about once we have released them onto pasture. I do ask that you keep a respectful distance from them, for although veterinarians assure me there is no documented animal-to-human or human-to-animal transfer of the COVID-19 virus, it is better for all to be safe and not touch or feed them.

UPDATE: POSTED MARCH 19, 2020: As the story of COVID-19 continues to evolve, my staff and I are increasingly concerned about the welfare of our animals and the ability to safely perform our jobs. Over the past few days, there were a number of people walking the property and unfortunately not all were practicing social distancing or abiding by our request not to touch animals or go into our buildings. These actions raise challenges for the continued health of my team and our livestock.

I am requesting that you limit your time at Remick to walking on the Binsack Trail and not venturing onto other areas of the property. The Trail is accessed from Great Hill Road, above the cattle barn, as well as on Cleveland Hill Road, close to, and across the street from, the entrance to our parking lot. I will continue to provide access to the Trail as long as it is prudent and on the condition that there is no vandalism, garbage, etc.

Most of the Remick staff is working at home, others are here behind-the-scenes caring for our animals and daily operations. We are still answering the phone and emails so please reach out to us with any concerns or needs we can safely address. If we work together, maintaining our hope and goodwill toward others, our community will get through these dark days.


Thank you for being our friends and neighbors,

Cara Sutherland
Executive Director
Edwin C. Remick Foundation
