The holiday season arrives at the farm!

As of Wednesday, July 1, 2020, we are open and operating under museum guidelines provided by the governor of the State of New Hampshire, made necessary by the COVID-19 outbreak. As a result, all programming and events are on hold until further notice. If we are able to resume a more typical schedule, this annual event will take place.
