Hayride on the Farm
Brookford Farm, 70 Sligo Rd, Rollinsford, NH
Saturday, June 25th at 3:30 p.m.
Free; first come, first served
During spring, summer, and fall, Brookford Farm offers monthly hayrides and farm tours which are great for people of all ages. On a Brookford Farm tour, you can expect to see up-close views of the cows, pigs, and chickens in the pastures, as well as our vegetable gardens, grain fields, and pastures. At certain times of year, it’s likely that you’ll even get to see newborn calves, piglets, or chicks. More than just sightseeing trips, Brookford Farm tours are led by knowledgeable guides who are farmers themselves, and who are able to explain the interconnected mysteries which are the sum total of a farm as diverse as ours.
We start at the Farm Store with a brief orientation to the farm, and then tour the pastures, grain fields, greenhouse, and gardens, stopping along the way to explain the inter-connected life cycles of the animals, field crops, and vegetables of Brookford Farm. We return to the farm store around 4:30 or 5. Space is limited to the first 30 participants — first come, first served. Rain or shine.
Hayrides, like farming, happen in all types of weather, so be sure to bring clothing for your group which will make everyone comfortable. These tours are totally free and no reservations are required. Look for upcoming farm tours on our events calendar.
