The Trustees of Reservations (The Trustees) today announces the return of its annual Weir River Farm Fall Festival on Saturday, October 1, from 10AM-5PM.
Come celebrate the fall harvest season with some old-fashioned fun at one the last working farms in Hingham. Spend time in the barnyard visiting with our animals and learning from our team of Farmer/Educators, climb aboard a tractor, choose a farm “tattoo,” and make a harvest-themed craft!
If all this activity leaves you hungry, grab your blanket and enjoy a picnic provided by Mom on the Go Food Truck, Ribpublic BBQ, and the Pizza Guy, enjoy ice cream from Hornstra Farms, and sip local beer from Stellwagen Beer Company, Vitamin Sea Brewing, and Zelus.
A full day of live music begins at 10:15 with local favorite Peter Mundt. Cape Cod’s famous Crabgrass Bluegrass Band performs at 12:15 and The Lindseys play at 2:45.
At the top of the hill visit local vendors including Story Book Cove, The Gifted Heart, Waev Jewelry, and Deveney Designs. Our friends from Cardinal Cushing will be selling their beautiful crafts. Be sure to stop by the Weir River Farm Store to purchase cider donuts and apples, delicious local cheeses, jams, baked goods, fresh produce, as well as fun locally-sourced gift items. The freezer is stocked with organic, pasture-raised Trustees meat, so bring a cooler. Our farm team will be on hand, grilling burgers and sausages so you can try before you buy!
Admission includes everything except food and beverages. Event is rain or shine. Tickets available online, at https://thetrustees.org/event/68730/ or at the door from 11am – 3pm. Tickets are $9/adult $5/child for Trustees members and $15/adult $10/child for non-members.
