Farms Day Event on September 13 from 10am–4pm

by Paula Mark

The Holliston Agricultural Commission is counting down the days to their annual Farms Day event on Sunday, September 13th from 10 am – 4 pm (rain date September 20th). This year we have all your favorite farms participating: Newfound Farm, Out Post Farm, Arcadian Farm, Lil’ Folk Farm, Bullard Memorial Farm, Little Beehive Farm, Kilkelly Farm, MacArthur’s Farm, and the Mayor’s Plantation. This year we are also welcoming Kokopelli Farm to Farms Day, a new small farm to town. All of the farms participating will offer fun activities for all ages.

At Farms Day you’ll be able to experience live farm animals, petting zoos, local farm fresh fruits, vegetables, local flowers, honeybees and so much more! Some activities that will be going on that day are: Newfound Farm will have their annual tractor show along with their farm animals; Bullard Memorial Farm, with their staff adorned in Colonial period attire, will host a coopersmithing program on wooden bucket making from 1-4 pm, a candle making activity for the kids, as well as the museum and grounds will be open to tour; Out Post Farm will have a petting zoo, a Blue Grass Band, and corn tasting; and Lil’ Folk Farm will be hosting a horse show, which will benefit Celebrate Holliston.

The Community Garden that is located behind Pinecrest Golf Club will be welcoming visitors to the garden plots that will showcase what the gardeners have done this year, as well, the Butterfly Aviary, that is located next to the Community Garden, will also be open for visitors. Agricultural Commission members will be present at both the Community Garden and Butterfly Aviary, to provide information on agriculture and farming in Holliston and the work they are doing in the community.

We are putting together a map of the farm locations and the activities at each farm and will be posting it soon on our Facebook pages (Holliston Farming and Gardening Trading Post and Holliston Agricultural Commission), and on The flyer will also be available at each of the farms that day. We look forward to seeing you around town that day!
