Posts Tagged ‘Wolfe’s Neck Farm’

Our dear friends were in town for a few days last week. We celebrated their final evening in Maine at the Wolfe’s Neck Farm Family Farm Feast. The Freeport-based, farm-to-table dinner featured local fare from two of our favorite restaurants, Gather and Frontier, plus music from North of Nashville. We loved the idea of a farm dinner devoted to families, and couldn’t wait to see what was in store.

Wolfe’s Neck Farm, a 626-acre, educational farm set on the Casco Bay, is one of our favorite places to visit any time of year, but in the fall, the golden fields and changing trees make for a stunning setting. We visited for a Pumpkin Hayride, and despite a cloudy Sunday, our team had a blast.

In late January, the Cute Potato team visited the L.L.Bean Winter Carnival in Freeport. The outdoor carnival is an impressive event, where families get to try snowshoeing, ice fishing, cross country skiing, and more snowy day activities for free! The CP kids had a blast trying all of the activities, but their favorite by far was snow tubing down an expansive hill, again and again. It’s undeniable—L.L.Bean makes a super cool snow tube. And guess what? Today, you could win an L.L.Bean Sonic Snow Tube (regularly valued at $109) for your family!

We love visiting and supporting our local farms at Cute Potato, and Wolfe’s Neck Farm in Freeport is one of our favorites. At the Spring Festival today, the kids enjoyed the music of the Casco Bay Ramblers, whose sound reminds us a little of Johnny Cash. Cute Potato #1 and #2 loved the Ramblers cover of “You Are My Sunshine,” and were especially taken with one particular yodeling solo.

After the show, we spent time peering at the sheep, baby goats, cows and roosters. Cute Potato#2 was so excited, he started to sing the chorus to “Old MacDonald” unprompted.

The best part of the festival was the fun craft projects for the kids. Both made masks out of paper plates, pipe cleaners and popsicle sticks. And Cute Potato #1 made a beautiful beaded bracelet. We decided on the way home that we would buy our own beads so we could make more.

Wolfe’s Neck Farm has great events throughout the year—many tailored to kids and families. Keep an eye on their calendar. We know we will.
