      This event has been rescheduled for the rain date, Sunday, June 3. Vintage Base Ball is cancelled.


      Celebrate the start of the season and the opening of the attached farmhouse at Spencer-Peirce-Little Farm. Lived in by the Stekionis family from 1913 to 1993, the farmhouse is open to the public for the first time as an example of twentieth-century domestic life. Farm activities abound as we prepare for the summer growing season: watch teams of draft horses and mules plow our fields; shear six of our seven resident sheep (ask us why we will not shear the seventh) and Cashmere goat; tempt your taste buds with locally made pie, one of Jacob Stekionis’ favorite foods; sample locally made libations from Ipswich Ale Brewery and Turkey Shore Distilleries; enjoy traditional New England music; tour the 1690 manor house. Kids can make crafts, watch a puppet show, or learn about our animals. Shop local vendors, and enjoy blacksmithing demonstrations, wool washing and spinning, and horse-drawn wagon rides.

      Please call 978-462-2634 for more information.
