Great Maine Outdoor Weekend Event, Hike the Aldermere Farm Trails!

Have you ever wondered where the trails are located at Aldermere Farm? On Friday, September 26 at 4pm, come join us for a hike on both trails - one to the ocean and one to an overlook of Lily Pond.

Please RSVP to 236-2739 or jlucas@mcht.org by Thursday Sept. 25. Once you RSVP, you will be notified of the meeting place to start the hike. Both trails are fairly easy hikes, but the ocean trail has some uphill sections and rougher terrain.

The Big E Agricultural Fair

If you are in the Springfield area than come and visit The Big E in West Springfield, Massachusetts. The fair runs from September 12-28 and offers great events and activities for the whole family. Aldermere Farm will have some of our Belted Galloways there competing against belties from other farms from across New England. Our group of 4H members, the Aldermere Achievers will be there demonstrating their showmanship skills and hope to continue their successful fair season.
