Harvest Feast set for French Farm Sept. 16

French Farm will provide the backdrop for this year’s harvest feast co-hosted by the Greenwich Historical Society and Friends of French Farm on Sunday, Sept. 16, from noon until 4 p.m.

The afternoon’s activities will include food, fun and music for the whole family. Guests will be able to stroll the grounds at their leisure or take a more formal guided tour of the unique historic property.

Kids can romp, discover how antique lawnmowers and farm implements worked, pet the sheep and check out the chickens. The harvest table will be laden with a bounteous, seasonal buffet catered by John Barricelli, celebrity chef, author, host of Everyday Baking and owner of The SoNo Baking Company Cafe. Food, wine and beer are included in the ticket price.

French Farm is considered a vital part of Greenwich’s historic landscape. It is comprised of the remaining four-acre heart of the 35-acre residential farm built in 1905-1910 by AIA President, H. Van Buren Magonigle for Mary Billings French. It was the first Greenwich property listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Called “a living work of art” created by the late David Wierdsma, French Farm weaves natural and man-made objects amongst specimen plantings in garden rooms that flow from one theme to another. The farm also features charming outbuildings including a chicken coop, cow barn and silo.

Reservations are required and may be made online at Greenwichhistory.org or by calling 203-869-6899, ext. 10.

Tickets for adults are $65 and tickets for children under 12 are $20.
