Spending time on a working farm gives us a deeper connection to our food and offers an opportunity to spend more time outside, plus there's so much fun to be had on the farm!

We had the most wonderful birthday party at your farm today! Thank you!
Thank you to everyone who came out to the market yesterday for Kid's Day - it was a huge success! Special thanks to Farmer's Helpers, Weymouth Public Libraries, Characters By Jen, and all of our awesome vendors for helping make the day so fun. We hope you'll join us at our last remaining markets of the summer/fall season - this Sunday 9/19, Sunday 9/26 and the Closing Day of the 2021 Summer/Fall Weymouth Farmers Market on Sunday 10/3.
Had a fabulous time at Farmer's Helpers this weekend! Thank you Farmer Sandy!
Hi, when will your next goat yoga for kids be? Also, is it available for age 10? On your site it said ages 2-4 and 4-9 then 13+ can do adult sessions, but nothing for 10-12?
