Would you like to take a tour of Essex Farm? Get your chance this summer on May, 11!
May is plowing and planting season. Weather permitting, we’ll hitch some horses and see what horse-powered tillage looks like. We tour the fields and barnyard together from 10 until noon, then have a potluck lunch. In the afternoon, you are free to explore the remote parts of the farm on your own, or join Mark for a walk or a work project.
All the tours involve a lot of walking over uneven ground. Wear sturdy footwear. Families with small children might want to bring an all-terrain stroller. Potluck lunch! Bring a dish to share and your own place setting. While reservations are not necessary, it’s nice to know how many to expect, so if you know you’re coming, please send us an email with the number of people in your party. (Essex Farm)
