Plenty to see and do at Temple Farms & Barns event
To the Editor:
Don’t miss Temple Farms & Barns this Saturday!
This action-packed event, scheduled from 9:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. on Saturday, July 25, features seven outstanding barns dating between 1754 and 2015. Each barn has something unique to offer, and barn greeters will point out the charming and curious features.
The action-packed day will teem with events for every member of the family, from hay rides and rambles with lambs to pasture walks with cows and milking demonstrations. Go to Touchstone Farm for driving and high jump demonstrations, and a team of equestrian vaulters will dazzle the crowd with their derring-do expertise.
UNH barn historian and author John Porter will give a pictorial tour through a variety of old New England barns; and round off your day with live music from the Temple Dance Band.
A myriad critters to enjoy and pet! Miniature horses, Nubian goats and kids – plus chickens, horses, cows and sheep.
Visit unique displays of antique farm equipment and tools, with ongoing shingle-mill demonstrations.
Admission is $20 in advance, $25 at the door for adults, youngsters 13-18 $10. Youngsters under 13 are admitted free. Order tickets online at www. templebarns.org.
Proceeds from Temple Barns & Farms will support the Temple Historical Society’s numerous worthwhile projects.
