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).

    • Search for the “missing” gnomes across the farm grounds.

    • 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.”
    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.

  • Share a picnic with family and friends—pack-in pack-out picnics welcome! Purchase half-pints of Sandwich Creamery ice cream at our farm store (open Tuesday–Saturday, 10AM-2PM) for dessert, while supplies last.

  • 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. Half-pints of ice cream are available from our neighbors at Sandwich Creamery, for enjoyment on-site or off (while supplies last).

  • NEW! New Hampshire Heritage Museum Trail passports are available for sale on-site. Visit 18 unique New Hampshire museums and receive free admission for the passport holder. Passports cost $25, a $150 savings off of the regular cost of admissions.
