2017 Circle Brook Farm Event Schedule

2017 Circle Brook Farm Event Schedule

Fall Events

We will host several more events at the farm this fall. These will all be opportunities to see the farm, help out a bit and to receive a pumpkin.

Harvest Festival, Saturday, October 21, 11 am ‘til ? and Sunday October 22, 11 AM until 4 PM.

Saturday will be the main event, with Sunday as a rain date or for anyone who cannot make it on Saturday. This will be similar to the spring event. It will be potluck for lunch, there will be grills available for cooking. Members can begin arriving after 10 am. I will give 2 farm tours--the first at 11:30 and the second at about 2 PM. If there is interest, we can do some pumpkin painting or carving for the kids. Also if there is interest we will build a fire at the back of the property and have a campfire sing-along. Bring your acoustic instruments and your voices. Bring your own food and beverages. We will provide apple cider. Take home a pumpkin.

Volunteer Days

Sunday October 15, 11 am. Come out and help with the winter squash harvest and be rewarded with an ornamental or edible pumpkin.

Sunday November 5, 11 am. Come out and help prepare the garlic for planting. This will be done inside the barn, so it will be rain or shine. If there is interest and the weather permits, I will be happy to show folks around the farm in the afternoon.

Please RSVP to me directly (kruegerjohn@earthlink.net) if you will be attending either of the volunteer days or would like to hang around for a campfire. Also anyone willing to come a little earlier for the farm visits and help out with parking or other logistics--your assistance would be welcome.

I look forward to meeting many of the members in the coming weeks!

Directions to Circle Brook Farm: 141 Brighton Rd. Andover NJ 07821

Take I-80 West to Rt. 206 North. Follow 206 for about 8 miles. Just after passing a Shell station (the 2nd one) you will pass under a tunnel. The next left is High St., you will see a blue sign for County Route 606 and on the left a yellow sign for low bridge ahead. Turn left there, up a steep hill to a traffic light. Go through the light and follow Brighton St. for about 2 miles, it will turn into County 603 and you go down a hill and around a curve. Turn into the driveway at the second and larger yellow house with a red barn on both sides of the street. If you miss the turn on High St., continue through the Borough of Andover and turn left on Brighton Rd, County 603 (Simon and Peters Sport Shop is on the corner). The farm will then be on the left in one and half miles. Use the address above for navigation with your phone or GPS. If you use Circle Brook Farm, it will take you to the wrong place!
