Holiday Open House December 5th

Come visit Pompanuck Farm for a Holiday Open House on Saturday, Dec. 5 from 10 – 6. Follow signs to the Round House where you can chat with neighbors or enjoy a cup of tea, coffee, or cocoa and sample some of our delicious baked goods: fresh hearth baked rosemary bread, rich raisin studded babkas, Italian hazelnut biscotti, almond meringues, and our “surprise ginger snaps”. Children are invited to decorate their own gingerbread cookies. You’re also invited to take a walking tour of the buildings and grounds or a hike in the Pompanuck woods.

This season the Pompanuck Store has some wonderful new additions to our collection of homemade items as well as many traditional favorites like colorful Mexican shopping bags made from recycled plastics, gingerbread candlesticks, cornhusk angels, birch bark barrels, and industrial strength potholders.

There is a new line of jewelry, accessories, and house wares, crafted by talented local high school students. Also available is framed Chinese Calligraphy, an art taught during our Tai Ji workshops here at Pompanuck. They convey with powerful brush strokes the beauty of the natural setting in which they were created.

You may do your holiday shopping from 10am- 6pm daily from December 1st – 24th. (Closed Mondays). Purchases at the Pompanuck Store help support our programs for children and families. Pompanuck Farm is a 501c3 educational not-for-profit.

We are seeking volunteers who are able to help out in the store for 3 hour shifts. Volunteers are welcome to a 10% discount on anything in the store. Please contact Lisa Carrino 518-677-5552 for more information.
