Austin and Kendra Martin, the husband and wife team who run Squash Hollow Farm in New Milford, have organized a fun and educational day of events and live demonstrations for the public to enjoy on Open Farm Day. Save the date for Saturday, May 25, when you are invited to visit this 10-acre farm which grows vegetables and raises chickens, pigs, goats, guinea hens, and turkeys. Please refer to the flyer for a list of the day’s events. More coming!
Squash Hollow Farm raises Cornish X and heritage breed chickens for meat and is holding a Raising Meat Chickens course at the farm on April 27 at 10 am.This is not for the meek or faint of heart: as part of the course you will be processing your own chicken and taking it home for dinner. It’s for the burgeoning number of farmsteaders who want to learn to be more self reliant.
