Pettengill Farm Day

This is a day of family fun at our pristine 140-acre Salt Water Farm each fall. Learn more about the farm on our Pettengill Farm page. There is always a lot to see and do on this 200+ year old farmstead as we celebrate rural life of the 1800’s. We enjoy wagon rides, kid’s crafts and games, farm animals, apple cider pressing, specialty walks on the grounds, demonstrations, lunch and more.

The saltbox farmhouse is open that day with guided tours available. This is also the only day of the year vehicle traffic is allowed down to the farm, with convenient parking right on the fields.
