Celebrate National Food Day at Arrowhead

Help us to celebrate the end of our incredibly successful first year of farming at Arrowhead on National Food Day. See the farm as it is prepared for winter, take a peek at our “peeps”, now full-grown and beautiful and congratulate our hard-working farmer, Kristen Laney on her success!

Housatonic Heritage Walk at Arrowhead

Join us on Sunday, September 21 at 2:00 p.m. to walk the grounds and forest paths of Arrowhead. We will combine a short hike through the wooded area at the back of the property where Herman’s children would walk to visit the Moorewoods with a stroll through the side yard and the farm to gain a sense of Melville’s time here. Gather in the parking lot at 1:45 p.m. Free and open to the public. While the hike is not rigorous, it is wooded and somewhat hilly. appropriate foot wear is requested.

It’s a Super Saturday Event!
