Stamford Museum and Nature Center Spring on the Farm

Dayummm

You NEED this!

One of our favorite places in all of Connecticut Stamford Museum & Nature Center.  And, this coming Spring on the Farm Festival Weekend it’s about to become our more most favoritest place!  All the action is going down on 5/18 and 5/19 from 11 am to 3 pm.  Yes, their annual party is getting bigger and badder than ever with the addition of seven, count ‘um seven, food trucks.  On Saturday you can get the Caribbean flavors of Maddy’s Food Truck, good ol’ fashioned American fare with Cowabunga, hot pies from Victoria’s Wood Fired Pizza Catering, got your hands on some meatballs from The Local Meatball, and cold and creamy goodness from Skip’s Ice Cream Co.  Then, come back for more on Sunday where you can try the awesome fries and sandwiches of Fryborg, the awesomely organic and oven-to-table pizzas of Skinny Pines, and get more of that ice cream from Skip’s Ice Cream Co.

Aw, we have the same hair color!

But, this weekend isn’t just about food.  Okay, it’s a big portion of it, but there’s other reasons why you’ll love coming by:

1) Check out the baby goats.  It’s all about the baby goats…but there are lots of other animals to ooh and ahh over.

#FF Gets New Meaning: Friday Farm Market @ Stamford Museum and Nature Center–Stamford, CT

13 May

Update:  things are a bit different for this year’s (2012) Friday Farm Market.  Check it out here.  

Two things of awesomeness:

1)  Stamford Museum & Nature Center will be hosting a “Friday Farm Market” from June 10 until October 28.  The Friday Farm Market will take place at SM&NC‘s upper parking lot off of Scofieldtown Road.  What will be for sale?  On their FB page, they say: ” The SM&NC Friday Farm Market will feature Connecticut farmers and vendors with agricultural, horticultural, and food items that they have grown, produced, or processed.”  Here’s some info on New Canaan’s Farmer’s Market!

10 am – 2 pm

Wave Hill Bread–>  Breads, pastries, cookies

Newgate Farms–>  Fruits, vegetables, plants, flowers, and baked goods

Dream Desserts–>  Desserts, duh

Walking Wood Farm–>  Eggs

Moorefield Herb Farm–>  Herbs

Smith Acres–>  Fruits and vegetables

Farming 101–>  Heirloom tomatoes

Truelove Farms–>  Eggs, pork, and beef

Sounds good to us!  Go local, go green, get shopping!

2) Spring on the Farm:  a special kick off and preview of Friday Farm Market this Sunday, May 15, from 11-4.  The sheep will get sheared and you can see how that wool gets turned into yarn.  Also on their FB page: “There will be activities for all ages including storytelling, face painting, crafts, a plant and herb sale, and more! We’ll have refreshments for sale, hayride tickets for purchase, and our galleries will be open.”

Sorry, we cannot condone any sheep or farm animal jokes in this post.
