September at Husky Meadows, a certified organic working farm, is a very special time to experience a farm stay. The gardens and orchards are brimming with fruits, vegetables, and flowers, just as the leaves are beginning to turn. The Orchard Farm Stay taking place from Friday, September 22 through Sunday, September 24 invites guests to enjoy the season in a beautiful setting on this small New England farm.
Farm stays include two nights lodging in one of four elegantly appointed and very private guest suites. A favorite among guests is the Pergola Apartment because it has two bedrooms and ensuite bathrooms, a sitting area, a kitchenette, and even a balcony. This totally separate guesthouse is perfect to book with four friends or family members. Another favorite guesthouse is called The Coop, which is the most private of all the rooms. It has a cozy loft bedroom and a large sitting room replete with a rustic stone fireplace. All meals with beverages and cocktails are included in the farm stay package. Highlights of the package include a Friday night welcome dinner around a communal table, light breakfast, and lunch, a Saturday evening cooking class dinner, and a sumptuous and healthy Sunday brunch.
During the Orchard Farm Stay, guests will have the opportunity to go into the garden and harvest its bounty with Farmer Brett, who tended the gardens at California’s famous restaurant, The French Laundry. There will be a cider-making donut class and a pie-making class with Tracy Hayhurst, the farm’s Culinary Director followed by a Hard Cider Tasting that features the best hard ciders made in the Northeast.
The two-acre orchard at Husky Meadows Farm is a treasure trove of peaches, plums, pears, and too many types of apples to name. A highlight of the weekend will be the Saturday night cooking class that combines fruit from the orchard into a mélange of savory dishes inspired by the harvest. Guests will be amazed at the number of ways there are to incorporate fruit into savory dishes. Cooking is an art and the classes at Husky Meadows Farm are designed to help guests make magic in their kitchens long after the weekend is over.
