Powisset Happenins!

It's been a while since I wrote so I thought I would fill you in on all of the exciting things going on at Powisset in the near future...and this summer!

In case you didn't notice, its May and Mothers Day is coming up. On Sunday, May 14th we are hosting our 2nd Annual Mothers Day Brunch. Join us as we toast Mom with delicious food catered by Bonne Bouche, listen to some music by the Sharon Music Academy, visit our animals including our newly born piglets, and kids will have the opportunity to make a craft for Mom. Tickets are going quickly so get yours now!

2 weeks later, on May 29th (Memorial Day) we host our biggest event of the year, Springfest! This is when we do a little dance and celebrate that CSA season is about to start! The event, which starts at 10am is preceded by the Powisset Farm Trail Run (starting at 8am) organized by SunMultisport. The lineup for Springfest includes music by The Railroad House Band, The Powisset Cafe will be open for breakfast and lunch, the farm stand where we will be selling veggies and other local products.We will be offering 2 farm tours, we'll have our goats friends on hand (including 2 goat milking demos), a pie-eating contest, a bike blender (whipping up smoothies), lots of local vendors, and much more! Check out our whole line up here.

Looking for something to do with your pre-schooler this spring. We will be hosting a 4-week series program called "Pre-School Farm Explorers", held Wednesdays from 10-11am, May 17th-June 7th. Every week will be different and we'll be doing activities such as collecting eggs from our chickens, planting some veggies and/or herbs, reading a farm-friendly story and perhaps even learning about seasonal foods.

Looking ahead to June and beyond....for anyone who has enjoyed our Friday Farm Dinners, we will be holding 7 of them this season - every other Friday starting on June 30th. Didi Emmons will be our chef for all dinners, and we will of course have music, lawn games, beer & wine for sale...and lots of family-friendly fun! To check out all of the dates, please see the "Things to Do" section of our web site.

We're Hiring! We are still looking to hire a Cook to prepare yummy local food for our Powisset Cafe this summer. The Cafe will be open from June 13th thru mid Oct from 10-2pm. If you or someone you know are interested in learning more about this position please contact me at

On behalf of the Powisset Farm team, we hope to see you around the farm!
