Saturday gets going early at Powisset- The Farm Stand and Café are open from 10-4, featuring farm-grown veggies and other locally-sourced foods. You're also welcome to bring your own food to the biergarten.
Powisset's Open Barnyard program runs from 10-2, so you can stop in and see how this working farm grows food for their CSA and Farm Stand.
A fun run will meet at the biergarten site at 11:30am and head out for a loop around the Noanet Woodlands before returning back to the biergarten for refreshment and socializing.
The Wagwan Jerk Bar will also be serving their modern Caribbean barbeque in the afternoon and evening.
About Powisset Farm: This 108-acre property has a long history of agricultural enterprises, from a dairy farm many years ago, to Amelia Peabody’s legendary farm, famous for its breed stock of Hereford cattle and Yorkshire pigs. Many visitors remember fondly the glowing green pastures dotted with cattle and framed by beautiful barns. The Trustees began farming for their CSA program in 2007, growing vegetables, herbs and flowers for their own CSA program as well as a farm stand open three days a week in the summer. Powisset Farm also offers Powisset Cooks, an ongoing series of culinary education workshops and farm dinners, as well as making weekly donations to five local hunger relief partners.
The Trustees is a non-profit that preserves, for public use and enjoyment, properties of exceptional scenic, historic, and ecological value in Massachusetts. Their network of over 100 farms, historic homes, and wooded areas spans from The Berkshires to the Cape and Islands and everywhere in between.
