Bloomfield Farm

Bloomfield Farm Day

SUNDAY, OCTOBER 19 | 12:00 - 3:00pm

Free with admission.

Visitors are invited to celebrate farming life, past and present at Bloomfield Farm Day. Tour the Arboretum’s oldest and newest buildings - the recently renovated Springfield Mills, which dates back to 1760, and the Platinum Level LEED® Certified Horticulture Center complex, completed in 2010. As well as building tours, there will be demonstrations and vendors commemorating Bloomfield Farm’s agricultural history.

Learn about time-honored farming professions by educational instructors Jim Bobb the Bee Keeper, Jack the Cooper, a traditional woodworker, and Quilter, Patti Stone. Explore goat farming and products made from goat milk with Shady Apple Goats who will be on site with two baby goats, Buckwheat and Clover. Weaver’s Way will also be in attendance with live chickens to discuss backyard chicken keeping. Enjoy blue grass music by local band, Valley Creek and look for Springfield Township Historical Society who will have games and crafts for the kids.

Take advantage of this rare opportunity to glimpse a different time with a short trip to Bloomfield Farm, located across the street from the Arboretum’s main entrance on Northwestern Avenue.
