In conjunction with the Chatham Agricultural Partnership's Farm Tour, our farm will be open for visitors on September 23. You will be able to walk around the farm and see the alpacas, turkeys, guineas, chickens and possibly some new piglets as our sow Midge is due right around the 23rd. We will have demonstrations of spinning yarn, kids activities, and possibly see our new puppy that arrives at the end of August!

The following vendors are slated to be here:


  • Behn's Best Perennials, Malden Bridge. A wholesale plant grower, Behn's grows 450 varieties of native and garden perennials, ferns, grasses and clematis. Joe will have a nice selection of plants for purchase.
