Old-Fashioned Valentine's Day

Saturday, February 13 | 10:00–4:00 p.m.

Children's Craft: Valentine's Day Card


The air may be chilly, but the farm's wintery landscape is the perfect setting for a heartwarming Valentine's Day ride. Couples can take a romantic spin in a two-seater sleigh or carriage pulled by a team of light workhorses. Families and groups can snuggle into a bobsled or hay wagon pulled by a handsome team of drafts. No matter the hitch, the horses will be wearing their finest bells. 

Inside the farmhouse there will be live music by the Jugtown Mountain String Band, soup on the stove, and a children's craft program from 11 to 3 p.m. for a small materials fee. In the Charles Fish Barn, renowned artist Lauren Muney will be demonstrating the elegant process of cutting silhouettes by hand—and talking with visitors about the history of this traditional craft. Individual portraits can be purchased to benefit the farm's school programs.

**Please note that all 2021 Saturday programs will be modified to encourage social distancing and reflect current State guidelines for public events. Visitors are required to carry masks at all times, and wear them when social distancing isn't possible. Thank you for your understanding, and we hope to see you soon!
