Annual Sankow’s Beaver Brook Farm Day (Lyme)
November 24, 2018 @ 11:00 am - 4:00 pm
Bring your family and friends to see over 600 sheep nd learn the history of the Sankow farm in Lyme, Connecticut on November 24th from 11 to 4 at the beaver Brook Farm Day. Discover how the farm products are produced and used. Suzanne Sankow says “Stan and I continue to encourage families to learn the importance of farming and local agriculture. We greatly enjoy seeing the next generations explore the farm, pet a cow, try a sheep’s cheese or just have fun being outdoors before the winter cold arrives”.
Activities for the family include wagon hayrides, wool spinning and sock making demonstrations. Live music will be performed by The Locomotives, a folk/blues/rock band, who will be playing songs from the 60s, 70s, 80s and 90s, in addition, some originals. Visitors can shop from a few local vendors including Four Root Farm who will be onsite selling holiday wreaths and swags made with all-Connecticut grown evergreens, rose hips and berries.
The Farm Market and Wool Shop will be open during the event and will feature a variety of artisanal sheep and cow’s milk dairy products and meats as well as new wool products including wool socks, pillows, blankets, capes and sweater capes. Complimentary tastings of sheep’s and cow’s cheese will be available including the Award-Winning BIG E ‘Best in Class’ Feta Pesto. Lamb and chicken sausage sandwiches, Abbey, Pleasant Cow and Pleasant Son mac & cheese, lamb and white bean chili, chicken corn chowder, hot chocolate and cider will be available for purchase.
