October Family Activities near Bedford, MA

I love that crispness in the air, and am so excited to break out my boots and sweaters! And there are so many great activities and events this time of year! Here are some of our favorites in the area coming up over the next couple weeks:

Fall Harvest Feast
Sun, Oct 11, 2015, 4:30 to 7:30pm
Drumlin Farm Wildlife Sanctuary, 208 S. Great Road, Lincoln, MA

Visit Drumlin Farm for an evening of farm fresh produce and fall fun! The three-course menu will highlight the best of their late summer and early fall harvest. Begin with appetizers and homemade beverages as you roam the farmyard. Chat with Emma Scudder, food and farm educator, and Katarina Goldenberg, CSA Coordinator about Drumlin Farm's sustainable practices. Together with family and friends, enjoy lawn games, music, and activities in the garden (for our younger guests). At 5:30 enjoy a family-style meal of salads, pizza, and dessert featuring Drumlin Farm produce and meat. Dinner will run rain or shine.
