Farm Family Fun Day Sunday

A pie eating contest, sack races, organic garden vegetable tours and a meet-and-greet with sheep, goats, chickens and ducks are just some of the festivities scheduled for Westport’s Wakeman Town Farm’s Farm Family Fun Day on Sunday from noon to 4 p.m.

In addition to lawn games, face painting and farm crafts, farm officials say, a picnic lunch on the lawns or picnic tables will feature grass-fed burgers from Craft Butchery and sandwiches. Also available will be salads with greens from the farm’s gardens, lemonade, and assorted mini-ice cream cones from Farmer’s Cow, a group of regional dairy farms.

“This is one of our favorite events of the year,” says Michael Aitkenhead, who manages the farm. “It’s great seeing so many kids and adults out on the lawns having fun at the farm.

“Every year, new families in the area stop by and say they can’t believe they didn’t know that there is an oasis like this right in their midst,” he added. “ …If you have been meaning to pop over and see what goes on at the farm, this is a great day to do it!”
