Welcome aboard for our 3rd Annual Hay Ride Social, on Saturday, November 5th.  Bring the entire family, enjoy refreshments and celebrate the fall season!  Peak fall foliage is late this year, so we’re expecting to see brilliant color.  From aboard the hay-wagon, Bruce Fellman, naturalist and photojournalist, will interpret our flora and fauna findings in the surrounding woods, fields and sky.  For best viewing, as we travel through the gates, fields and along the historic stonewalls, you may wish to bring binoculars.  Bi-level seating, on the hay-wagon, provides extra safety for young children and any other folks who prefer it. 

Sturdy footgear is recommended.


Assistance boarding the hay wagon will be provided.
