Fall Farm Tour set for next weekend
The Thurman Fall Farm Tour will be held Saturday, Oct. 12 — this year it will be a one-day-only event that area residents won’t want to miss.
Valley Road Maple Farm will be keeping the tradition alive, by being open both Saturday and Sunday serving up their famous pancake breakfast from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.
When you’re in town be sure to check out the many maple farms, plus Nettle Meadow Goat Farm with artisanal cheeses. A special attraction this year at nationally renowned Nettle Meadow is The Grafton Street Trio which will be performing from noon to 2:30 p.m.
Martin’s Lumber will be showing the workings of their sawmill as well as tours of their premises, explanations of their sustainable tree farming practices and displays of various crafts.
Adirondack Spectral Investigations is inviting the public to be part of an investigation of paranormal phenomena from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. Sally Feihel said folks can join Cheryl Kenyon and her in such an encounter.
Those interested must sign up ahead of time, as participation will be limited to a small number. The investigation will be followed by coffee and dessert. The price is $20. Contact Sally at 623-4889 to preregister.
Also be sure to visit Lima the Llama at Peru Llama Farm, where we hear there will be a maze of sorts for the children who attend. In addition, bring the children to Whitefield’s Farm where they can see the turkeys, and drop in at Adirondack Ambiance art gallery to see the exquisite artwork.
At the end of the day be sure to stop by Toad Hill Maple Farm for the Thurman Volunteer Fire Company’s chicken barbecue from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. — these extended hours are to accommodate people hosting visitors at event sites.
Organizers of the Thurman Quilt Show, routinely a part of the Thurman Fall Farm Tour, are seeking quilts from the past to be shown at the event from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. If you have an old quilt you’d like displayed, contact Avis at 623-9921.
