EAST HILL FARM MOOS

From the Issue: 
February 2012

All is not quiet on the farm.  The barns are preparing for lots of lambs to arrive as lambing season has begun!  One of our goats, Twilight, recently gave birth to a male kid and we are expecting a calf to be born to one of our Kerry cows, Misty, in the next month. 

The kitchen is also preparing for an eventful month.  Between our weekend and mid-week houseguests and our special one day activities, the kitchen staff will be very busy.  Our Valentine’s Day dinner will be held on Tuesday, February 14.  Entrée choices include Beef Tenderloin Medallions, Baked Scallops, a Five-Cheese Quiche, and Chicken Cordon Bleu.  Woodman’s Florist, of Peterborough, will be providing long stem roses with advanced orders. 

Monday, February 27, will be our Winter Family Farm Day from 9:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m.  Explore our barns, learn how to make cheese and candles, help groom the ponies, make s’mores at the campfire, pat the bunnies, participate in arts & crafts and go sledding.  Our trails and skating rink will be available for use, weather permitting, with rental equipment available for ice skates, snowshoes and cross country skis for those who need it.  The prices for the day are $25.00 per adult and $15.00 per child and include a buffet lunch at noon, all the activities, tax and gratuity. 

The Maple Madness dinner will be held on March 4.  Hors d’oeuvres will be served at 5:00 p.m. and dinner will be served at 6:00.  A silent auction will benefit the Monadnock Travel Council and Randy Miller will play the fiddle for your listening pleasure. 

Reservations are required for all of these events and both dinners are BYOB.  If you would like more information or reservations, please call us at 242-6495. 

If you are looking to buy locally grown meat, stop in and browse our selection of turkey, chicken, heritage beef, lamb, and pork.  All cuts are USDA inspected and approved.

We look forward to your next visit to the farm!
