THE REMICK COUNTRY DOCTOR TOUR
11AM | Thursday & Saturday | Last date: Saturday, October 30
Get a dose of medical history! Enter the front door of the stately Captain Enoch Remick House to find yourself in a traditional front hallway, once non-traditionally used as the waiting area for the medical office of the Drs. Remick. From there, learn about our father and son country doctors as you're guided through the first-floor rooms that served as purposeful areas of their combined medical practice. This tour also includes authentic 19th- and 20th-century medical tools and equipment and a one-of-a-kind historic apothecary that predates the earliest local pharmacy. This is an indoor tour and masks are required for all participants.

FARMSPLORING: ACTIVITIES ON YOUR OWN SCHEDULE
 
These “free-range” activities are self-led and included with your admission to the farm grounds (admission is by donation).

  • Visit with our farm animals in their seasonal, pastured settings. Our animals include chickens and a rooster, dairy and beef cows, goats, pigs, sheep, and a miniature horse named Sadie.

  • Delight your curiosity while on a family-fun scavenger hunt:

    • Search for the “missing” gnomes across the farm grounds (start near Welcome Station).

    • Discover our collection of colorful ecosystem friends in the Children’s Garden.

  • Discover what’s growing in our history-based Vegetable and Herb Exhibit Gardens.

  • Marvel at the natural composting efforts of worms and learn about vermiculture when you discover our worm bin.

  • Birding Fun: “What’s Your Wingspan?” and “Spot the Cardinal” activities.
    Plus, due to the various types of habitat that can be found across the farmstead, we have many species of birds that touch down during their migration or nest—see how many you can spot.

  • Ramble, relax, and rejuvenate—we are located in a beautiful spot, so please take time to enjoy the simple, seasonal pleasures of the Remick farmstead.

  • Walk the Binsack Trail, a .6 of a mile gravel trail that encircles and cuts between the farm’s main grazing pastures. Open daily, dawn to dusk.

  • Watch a seasonal demonstration. Season-based, pop-up demonstrations will take place occasionally throughout the fall. Activities will be announced on our Facebook page and Instagram feed.

  • Share a picnic with family and friends—pack-in pack-out picnics welcome!

  • The farm store is open for curbside pickup Tuesday–Saturday, 10AM–2PM. In good weather, store items can be viewed outside, next to the Museum Center. Orders may be placed during your visit and will be packed and ready for pickup when you leave.

  • Take lots of pictures! There is so much to catch your eye you’ll have fun capturing your visit. When posting images on social media, feel free to tag us on Facebook and Instagram and or/use the #RemickMuseum or #RemickFarm hashtag. With your permission, we just might share your images in our feed.
 

The health and wellbeing of all are important to us. Precautionary COVID-19 guidelines are in place and apply to your visit. With the exception of guided tours, all barns and buildings, including the Museum Center, are closed at this time; however, the farm grounds are fully open for your farmsplorations!
