Christmas Family photo time? Before Christmas takes over, get in the Halloween Spirit with a Mini Pumpkin Hunt at Martin House Farm on September 27!
It is also the last day of house tours for the season. Enjoy watching your kids mingle with neighbors as they search the festive grounds sprinkled with falls bounty. Watch as they tiptoe through fields that have been under continuous cultivation since the 1700s.
Afterward, please pick a pumpkin to take home supplied by Martin House farmers from Four Town Farmers.
Martin House Farm offers a glimpse back in time: a simpler time when the days were always spent together as a family. The property is a rare example of an 18th and early 19th-century farm which still retains the character of its original setting. It consists of the house, two barns and cultivated fields surrounded by dry stone walls and woodlands. Visitors can peek into the hay barn and visualize days gone by when the farmer was storing his hay there for bedding, covering crops, and feeding animals. The home was lived in continuously by members of the Martin family for over 200 years. Each room allows you to step back in time and visualize life in the early 1700s.
Martin House Farm is owned and operated by The National Society of The Colonial Dames in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. This nonprofit organization is celebrating its 127th year of service, promoting historic preservation, hosting patriotic services, and sponsoring veterans and educational programs focused on early US history.
