Three of Norfolk’s farms are opening their doors during Weekend in Norfolk. On Sunday afternoon, August 5, Husky Meadows Farm, Broad Field Farm and Lost Ruby Farm will be welcoming visitors for field and greenhouse tours, cheese tasting and goat petting. Husky Meadows, an organic farm, also produces soups and baked goods. Broad Field Farm, which specializes in heirloom tomatoes, will open its greenhouses and explain its growing methods to anyone interested. Lost Ruby Farm raises goats and milks them to make chevre and several other types of goat cheese. All three farms sell their products at the farmers market held in front of Norfolk’s town hall every Saturday during the summer…you can visit them there too.
Broad Field and Lost Ruby farms are located on (or just off) Winchester Road in south Norfolk; Husky Meadows is on Doolittle Drive in north Norfolk. For details and exact locations, see weekendinnorfolk.org/&more/; maps will be available in town.
Weekend in Norfolk, August 3, 4 and 5, is a three-day, town-wide art, music and nature festival. Events run the gamut from art exhibits to hiking, world-class music to two ice cream socials, farm tours and kite-making lessons to the opportunity to get married on the Village Green. New events are still being added. Visit weekendinnorfolk.org for event times and details.
