Bring your ice skates, sleds, and snowshoes to ifarm for some good old-fashioned winter fun. We will set a bonfire and benches next to Towne Pond, along with warm spiced cider and cocoa with marshmallows, to offer respite from the cold. Participants are welcome to skate on the pond, snowshoe in the nearby trails, or sled on our gentle hills.
Following the outdoor fun, come inside the historic farmhouse, sit near a crackling fire and listen while master storyteller Dr Gail Herman shares spellbinding tales from the Scottish Highlands, Africa, Asia, and Puerto Rico. Both adults and children will find joy and delight in Gail’s yarns and tales of yore, often accompanied by musical instruments.
Children will be able to greet our adorable Shetland sheep and hear a special Scottish highland tale specifically about the ancient Shetland breed. Gail has been a professional storyteller for over 35 years and holds a PhD in Instruction and Talent Development from the University of Connecticut and a Masters in Speech and Theatre from the University of Massachusetts.
The outdoor fun begins at 1 p.m. Storytelling begins at 3 p.m.
Admission tickets cover the entire afternoon. You may opt for Storytelling only but ticket price remains the same.
One ticket per guest, children included. (Age 2 and under, free.) No dogs, please.
