Shared Harvest Garden Crops are coming in very slowly, but we anticipate opening our weekly market at Parmelee in mid July on Wednesdays from 10:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. All are welcome. Please keep an eye on our Facebook Page and your church or civic organization bulletins. We will also put a post on the bulletin board at the Farm.

Historical Society –  The Society will welcome visitors to the Parmelee Farmhouse and newly built post & beam barn on second Sundays (July-September) from 3:00 p.m. – 5:00 p.m. Early artifacts on display in buildings. Come see “Harriet” the Killingworth horse-drawn hearse that the Society restored, learn about Cowboy Valley and buy a raffle ticket for a beautiful handmade Christmas quilt.

Artisan Market – Save the date! Saturday, Sept. 9, 10:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. rain or shine!  Something for absolutely everyone, shuttles available, free parking, free admission and come hungry! Dogs welcome on leash and well behaved.

Lost & Found  –  A small wire basket  is installed at the Kiosk for any small items found on the farm property and trails. Items of high value such as jewelry or car keys should be brought to Town Hall for safe keeping until owner reclaims.

Dogs at the farm – Must be on leash at all times for the safety of all, and please pick up after your dog. Dog waste stations available in several locations.  

Volunteers –  Many hands make light work and volunteers of all ages, skill levels and time availability are welcome. Call or e-mail Tim Gannon at: or (860) 395-9887, to find out how you can participate and/or contribute.
