Sip on local apple cider, meet other people from the surrounding area, and come help us clean garlic bulbs, to prepare the garlic for donation to local food pantries! This is a family-friendly activity where we will sit in a circle and take turns on 3 different stations: snipping off garlic stems, trimming roots, and peeling off the outer layer of garlic skin. Each participant gets to take home a pint of garlic.

We can host up to 20 people at a time, so please RSVP using this form to reserve your spot. This event is kid-friendly. No pets please. We are a smoke-free, substance-free space. Because we are a food-producing business, if you are feeling unwell, have a fever, cough, runny nose, or other symptoms, please do not come to the farm.

Rain Plan: In the event of heavy rain, we will postpone to the following weekend. We will send out an email reminder the day before to confirm the event plan.

What to Wear/Bring:

  • Please wear closed-toe shoes and long pants. Dressing in layers is recommended as temperatures can fluctuate.
  • Please bring a reusable water bottle and sun hat. We will also have extra hats.

What We Provide:

  • We will provide garden gloves, garden tools, and other supplies needed for the farming tasks.
  • We will have drinking water available onsite to refill water bottles.
  • We have a composting toilet and handwashing station available onsite.

Nature & Wildlife:

  • We encourage everyone to do a tick check when you return home. Removing deer ticks within 48 hours will keep you safe from lyme disease.
  • We have never seen poison ivy or poison oak on our property, although it does grow in this region.
  • Two extremely common plants to be cautious of are carrots and parsnips, which grow wild all over the Northeast. If their sap gets on your skin, it can cause mild blistering, which is harmless but can be uncomfortable. If you are taking medications that photo-sensitize your skin (e.g. increase your skin’s sensitivity to the sun), such as acne medication that contains alpha hydroxy acid (AHA), or if you have a history of photo-sensitivity, please let us know and be sure to wear a hat, gloves, long sleeves, and long pants while working and avoid working with carrots and parsnips.
  • We have never encountered poisonous spiders or snakes on our property, but likewise, recommend caution if you see an animal that you are unfamiliar with. Although uncommon, you may encounter blister beetles when working in the soil in the Northeast, which can cause mild but harmless blistering.
