With June’s beautiful weather, the festival attracts a huge crowd. Watch sheep shearing and herding. There are demonstrations of wool dying, spinning and weaving and sales of a variety of wool products.
Kids love seeing the new lambs and the all the other animals. Everybody enjoys the hayrides along the Don McIntyre Trail through the woods.
The silent auction to raise money for the care of the animals and maintenance of the farm has a fascinating array of items donated by our supporters. If your bid doesn’t earn you what you wanted, you can stock up on Taylor-Bray hats, tee-shirts, activity books and beach plum jelly.
Our Fall Festival features hay-wagon rides along the Don McIntyre Trail and old time games for the kids.
Pumpkins, gourds, calendars as well as Taylor-Bray Farm T-shirts, hats, activity books and crafts are on sale. Enjoy hot dogs, apple cider, apple cider donut holes and candy corn Rice Krispie treats.
Visit with the animals. There are Nester and Sam, our miniature donkeys, Dusty, our Nubian goat, Chloe, our Scotish Highland cow and of course, the sheep and chickens.
Join us for an old fashioned fun-filled day on this over 375 year old historic farm.
Start the Holiday season with a visit to Taylor-Bray Farm. For the festival the barn is filled with delicious homemade baked goods, beach plum jelly, wreaths, swags, centerpieces and other crafts, all made by farm volunteers. Taylor-Bray Farm calendars, activity books, t-shirts and grocery bags are available.
On the grounds you can purchase a beautiful Christmas tree – many sizes to choose from – and take a tractor drawn hayride, using our “new” 1952 John Deere MT tractor, weather permitting. While you are at the farm, be sure to visit the animals.
