MORE DETAILS:

Celebrate the harvest and the beautiful New England autumn. Learn how food makes its way from the farm to the dining room table. Join our costumed interpreters as they harvest apples, potatoes, carrots, and beets, and discuss food preparation, thresh and winnow grain, and shell corn and beans. We will also be putting the gardens to the bed for the winter.

You can also visit with the farm animals, take a horse-drawn wagon ride, see our progress on building a new Cabinetmaking Shop, visit with artisan craftspeople, and more!

NEW THIS YEAR: Virtual Home Gardeners'€™ Exhibit:

We want to see what you'€™ve been growing in your garden this year! Whether you are near or far, help us celebrate the fall harvest by entering this year'€™s Virtual Home Gardeners'€™ Exhibit. Learn more and enter here.

On the weekend of October 17 and 18, check back for a digital display of all the entries. A couple of our expert horticulturalists will also pick the best of each category, sharing feedback and comments about the winning entries.

All visitors and members will be required to purchase and/or reserve their tickets online to manage capacity in accordance with Massachusetts reopening guidelines. Available tickets will be released weekly on each Wednesday prior and arrival time blocks must be chosen. Purchase or reserve your tickets and see our current policies here.

Please also note:
Buildings are currently closed, but as the season progresses, we will open buildings in phases with occupancy limits. In the meantime, guests can watch a variety of demonstrations and talk with costumed historians outside!
In accordance with MA state guidelines, all guests are asked to wear a face mask when interacting with our staff or other visitors and when physical distancing is not possible.
