Dear Friends, 

I hope you enjoyed our video highlighting an incredible Summer 2021. What a summer it was! It is so hard to believe it is September.

I wanted to share more information with you about our upcoming Fall Open House on October 9 & 10, 2021.

In light of the continued spread of the Delta variant among the unvaccinated and the incidence, while low, of breakthrough cases among the vaccinated, we have made the decision to scale back our Harvest Weekend plans. We know many folks were looking forward to coming to F&W for a taste of fall (we were, too!), and we hope we can return to a full fall weekend of community, fun, and food next year.

While we’ve decided not to host our usual overnight and indoor weekend, we are able to open up and offer outdoor and distanced tours and day activities.

This year, we will be hosting a Fall Open House on October 9 & 10 including tours of our camps for new and returning families, a scheduled hike, and visits to the Farm!

Fall Open House Schedule of Activities:

  • Camp Tours: Two tours a day on October 9 & 10 at 10 AM and 1 PM. We will tour Barn Day Camp, Timberlake, IB, SAM, Flying Cloud, and Red Spruce Grove. Each tour will last about 2 hours. Please register for a specific tour (space is limited) via Eventbrite.
  • Guided Hike: We will host a guided hike around our Woodward trails on Sunday from 2 PM – 4 PM. Please register for the hike (space is limited) via Eventbrite.
  • Farm Visits: Visit the Farm Team at Tamarack Farm on Saturday and Sunday from 10 AM – 4 PM featuring a farm stand and activities. Activities include brushing the resident fiber rabbits, carding wool, hand-dipping beeswax candles, and making potato stamp art.

Everyone who wishes to come should reserve a general admissions ticket for the day, then choose from our ticket list for specific tours and our hike if you are interested in those! 

If you are in Vermont and want to stop by, say hi, visit the Farm, please do! Just let us know you are coming by registering for the general admissions ticket for Saturday or Sunday or both!
REGISTER for Fall Open House! 

We plan to host our Ice Cutting Weekend in February and a Spring Planting Weekend in May.  Please stay tuned to our email updates and check back on our website for information closer to those dates.

In peace,

Frances McLaughlin, Executive Director
