I will be photographing a wedding at Hartman’s Herb Farm this June so the bride and I decided to go out on a lovely spring day to see what was in bloom or about to be in bloom. I like to scout out locations prior to the day of shoots merely to get comfortable with my surroundings – I try not to pre-visualize things too much or else I feel like things just don’t flow.
Well, we were in a for a treat, not only is the venue beautiful, the owners are incredible too! What a great family !!! They try to do as much ‘Farm to Table’ items as possible for each event including Flowers & Veggies. If you ever need Herbs, Flowers, Perennials, Wedding/Party Venue, Dance Venue – this is it! Lynn and Carissa are so nice, welcoming and hospitable- it is clear they put as much emphasis, thought and love into an event as the host!
If you are looking for a nice country drive head out to Hartman’s in Barre, MA to see the beautiful flowers, shop around, and look at the animals ! Call the farm if you have any questions about their farm, what they sell, they are very helpful! This place is adorable and I barely touched the surface and mainly focused on the animals-FYI!
The Holliston Homestead- It was Shear Day back on March 24th. No sheep were harmed in this process – this guy is a PROFESSIONAL! Not even one knick! The reason the sheep are hand sheared is because their wool will be used for knitting. Next up – Carding the Wool and grading the coat! The sheep look so funny now and are quite naked. They have been so much more talkative since they got sheared. Didn’t hear a peep out of them all winter but now its BAH BAH BAH!
Drumlin Farm is worth a visit! They provide interest year round and have tons of animals! These are just a few sneak peak photos of what the farm has to offer! Don’t miss the raptors in their cages, the pigs, birds, the beautiful vegetable gardens, ponies, cows, and great staff!
They offer tons of interesting classes in their cozy education building, and miles of hiking trails !
This farm is full of fun and laughter ! My husband and I had a great time walking the trails and enjoying the fresh, autumn air !
