Guests will gather in our English garden overlooking the pond and wooded wetlands. Hot local cider and organic snacks will be served around the fire pit while we get acquainted. We'll start our tour walking through the garden, which will be getting ready for it's winter rest. As we approach the hen house we'll see the birds through the glass door - anxious to come outside and make a hurried dash to scratch in the leaves and take dirt baths. While we observe them we'll learn about the many breeds of chickens in our flock, their unique appearance and temperaments. Pecking order will be observed and poultry life-cycles discussed while we enjoy watching them romp, mate, eat and play (not necessarily in that order). You will be invited in to the hen-house where you'll see where they roost, sleep, what they drink, eat and where the hens lay their eggs, which we will collect. Then we'll escort the chickens to their outdoor enclosure where they can enjoy the remainder of the day. After we say goodbye to our new feathered friends we'll return to the fire pit to warm up, toast some marshmallows and take a few more deep inhales of the fresh country Autumn air. The Pound Ridge Organics Farm Market will open for an exclusive opportunity to taste, shop and get some local organic and artisan products to bring home as souvenirs of your experience on our farm. We can't wait for your visit!
