By Jen Risley (September 26, 2014)

Farm Day At Miles Smith Farm: A Family Event That Squeals With Fun
Sunday, October 12, 2014, 10 a.m. – 4 p.m.
Featuring New Hampshire Farms Network

 

MilesSmithFarmDay2014It’s the perfect fall family event to create memories, meet new friends and keep farming alive!  Local foods.  Local vendors.  Local fun.  That’s what the upcoming Farm Day at Miles Smith Farm will provide – and so much more!

Meet Charlotte the pig, Angus the rabbit or visit with the farm’s mini donkeys.  Meet local farmers at the Farmers’ Market area.  Cow riding?  Ever hear of it?  It is true; your child can ride a friendly and well-trained Scottish Highlander cow.  This is a chance of a lifetime for young cowboys and cowgirls!

And these are just some of the many activities planned for the Seventh Annual Miles Smith Farm Day on Sunday, October 12th, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Miles Smith Farm, 56 Whitehouse Road, Loudon.  The rain date is October 13th.  Admission is free with a fee for some activities.

Enjoy spectacular fall foliage as you take a hayride around the farm and feed Scottish Highlander cattle apples while listening to music provided by Celtic musicians or snuggle with Charlotte’s piglets.  The Human Scarecrow (Linda Ray from Clover Clown Company) will add to the fun.  Lunch can be purchased in the food tent.

Miles Smith Farm, a 36-acre farm located at 56 Whitehouse Road in Loudon, has been around for over 150 years.  Home of the “Burger that Squeals with Flavor,” the farm has provided Granite State citizens with locally-produced, grass-fed beef for the last nine years.  Farm Day is a way to share the benefits of buying fresh and local as well as sharing local tradition and the simple way of life found on a working farm.

Throughout the day Miles Smith, farm founder, returns from the 1850’s to guide visitors on a cemetery walk and to talk about the farm history.  Visitors will be able to pet, brush and feed Highlander cattle, enjoy face painting and participate in fun activities designed for kids.

The solar-powered, year-round farm store will be open where grass fed beef can be purchased.  You can find local, humanely raised beef and many other local products, including produce.  All of the food sold at the event will be from New Hampshire.

Farm Day 2014 sponsors to date include Harry-O Electrical, Tasker Landscaping, Concord Co-op, Chiropractic Health Innovations, and private party contributions.

Mark your calendars for this free-admission event at Miles Smith Farm, Sunday, October 12th from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.  For more information or directions, contact the farm at 603-783-5159 or visit www.milessmithfarm.com.
