August 1 is Chestnut Hill Farm’s third monthly Meet the Farmer event. This Saturday’s 10:00 am – 3:00 pm is packed with activities for all ages.

Fun includes milking goats, kids crafts, a reestablished walking trail, and getting up close with beekeeping.

Farm stand will be open 9-12 (from Friends of Chestnut Hill Farm Facebook page)The event overlaps the farm’s recently launched farm stand hours (Saturdays 9:00 am – nooon). So you can also grab some fresh produce while you’re there.

It’s also an opportunity to ask about the 1/2 season CSA share program to be offered later in August.

Here’s the event schedule

  • 10:00 – Learn to Milk a Goat
  • 10:30 – kids craft– Beehive print project
  • Earlier this summer CHF blog posted view from proposed Overlook Trail11:00 – Overlook Trail walk – we would like to walk with you on the new trail here on the farm (or rather, a reinvigoration of a trail that was once very popular and has somehow slid off the map). Great view of the farm!
  • 11:30 – Kids craft -Beehive print project*
  • Noon – Learn to Milk a Goat
  • Southside Apiaries hives at CHF (from Facebook)12:30-2:00 –  Honey bees! Learn all about our amazing pollinator friends from our beekeeper, Scott Navaroli. We will get up close and personal with the honey bees- even check them out under a magnifying glass to 40x! Taste some honey, learn how the bees make it and how they inhabit the special hives/homes we make for them.
  • 1:00  – Kids craft – beehive print project*

*The craft may be ongoing throughout the 12:30-2:00 talk to keep little ones interested while adults and older kids learn about honey bees.
