  • The Town of Durham New Hampshire
    The LaRoche chicken flock joins the Durham Agricultural Commission in inviting you to join us at LaRoche Farm on Bennett Road tomorrow, Saturday, August 16, 2014, for the 2nd Annual Durham Farm Day from 10am to 4pm. Four generations of the LaRoche Family welcome you on their farm where you can visit with the chickens, cows, goats, and even some sheep visiting from neighboring Liberty Hall Farm. There will be tours of the maple sugar shack, hay rides, and lots of farm equipment on hand and in use. A wide range of activities will be taking place on other farms across town as well, including: self-guided tours of the Community Gardens at Wagon Hill Farm from 10am to noon, cow rides at Emery Farm from noon to 2pm, an open house at Linden Woods Farm and horse stable on Packers Falls Road from noon to 2pm, and a self-guided tour at the UNH Fairchild Dairy during milking time from 3pm to 4:30pm. Emery Farm and Tecce Farm will have cold drinks and locally grown food. A full schedule of activities is available HERE.
