Come to Sutton, NH and share the food and festivities of a local, homegrown harvest on Sunday, October 4 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Muster Field Farm Museum!

Enjoy a hearty lunch of homemade soups, breads and baked goods while listening to the live music of fiddlers and area folk musicians. Featured musicians include The Click Horning Band from 12:00 to 1:30 p.m. and The Orzechowski Family Band from 1:30 to 3:00 p.m. in the historic Pillsbury Barn. The Buchans will provide fife and drum music throughout the day.

The farm stand offers a wonderful selection of seasonal vegetables, maple syrup and honey, as well as pickles, jams, and jellies all made locally.

Children can play traditional games, learn to make books, dip candles, and even create their own cornhusk dolls. Storytelling in the Ryder Schoolhouse will be ongoing throughout the day. Other exhibits include weaving and spinning, basket making, blacksmithing, bookbinding, and cider and ice cream making.  A great selection of books on traditional New England life will also be available, along with handcrafted wares.

Tours of the circa-1787 Matthew Harvey Homestead will be offered from 1 to 4 p.m., and will include a cooking demonstration on the open hearth.

Admission is $5 for adults; $2 for seniors; free for members.
