Bloomfield Farm Day

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

Free with garden admission; free for Members.

Come out and enjoy tours, demonstrations, music and good food as the Arboretum celebrates its rich agricultural history.

If you haven’t yet seen the restored Springfield Mills in action today is the best day of the year to see it. After learning the history of the mill and watching the corn being ground and sifted into meal, you’ll get to sample a fresh baked corn muffin.

Farm Day also celebrates the handmade and the homemade.

Enjoy demonstrations from the Philadelphia Guild of Handweavers, the Clay Studio, Nexus Metal Works and the Philadelphia Salvage Company. Learn about goats, chickens and bees with visitors from Shady Apple Goats, Weavers Way and the Beekeepers Guild. Savor hot food and beverages from the Compton Café while listening to the sweet sounds of Valley Creek’s bluegrass music. Children can enjoy making crafts of the past with the Springfield Township Historical Society.


New this year, the Arboretum’s awesome guides have put together a “Trees on Trial” tour that will introduce you to the research projects conducted on the farm property. Tours begin at 12:30pm.
