Celebrate Walktober With the Last Green Valley
Each season offers its own rewards, but in New England there’s no time like the fall to experience the natural beauty of the land. Join us for family-fun events on three of our member farms. Walk the farms and enjoy great views of peak foliage, learn where local food comes from and sample The Farmer’s Cow products. Guests also will receive a coupon to visit The Farmer’s Cow Calfé & Creamery in Mansfield during Walktober. All events are rain or shine. No dogs please.
