Chestnut Hill Farm is promoting that if you enjoyed past Harvest Fests, you’ll enjoy coming out to the farm on Sundays this fall.
The Trustees of Reservations is selling timed tickets for 90 minute sessions of “Fall Fun on the Farm” each Sunday between now and November 8th. You can expect “a hayride, a scavenger hunt, a visit with our friendly goats, a climbing haystack, fun games”, plus featured craft vendors and more. Live music will also be featured for part of the day each week.
Food trucks will be on site and a local beer vendor will sell craft beer. [Editor’s Note: Beer was available at the events through October 4th, but not currently available at later events.*] Those vendors will vary each week. This Sunday will feature:
- Bird’s Nest Italian Street Food
- Lost Shoe Brewing and Roasting Company
- Candy Cove Treats
From 12:00 -200 pm Ethan Robbins will be playing live music. (I looked him up and discovered his jam is Bluegrass, Folk, and Rock.)
Tickets will be sold for sessions each Sunday running from 12-1:30 pm; 1:30-3 pm; and 3-4:30 pm. Admission will cost TTOR Members $12/Adult & $9/Child. Nonmembers are charged $20/Adult & $15/Child. Children under the age of 2 can attend for free.
On Facebook, TTOR shared photos from the goat “flerd” at the farm this week and of fun at similar past events:
You should note that unlike the images above, this fall the farm is requiring attendees to wear masks and maintain social distancing. (The timed sessions will allow for that by capping attendees at 50 people on-site at a time under COVID regulations.)
*Updated (10/13/20 12:17 pm): Citing concerns about ensuring that parking for events doesn’t overflow into parking for the public trails, the Board of Selectmen voted on October 6th not to approve the Alcohol Licenses for the events October 11th and later.
Updated (10/16/20 5:16 pm): It appears the events schedule now ends at 4:30 pm instead of 6:00 pm.
