On Sunday, October 21, from noon to 4 p.m., celebrate farming life, past and present, at Morris Arboretum’s Bloomfield Farm Day. Learn about Bloomfield Farm’s rich agricultural history and leisurely browse original art and craft works created by Morris Arboretum’s talented staff and members. At this multi-generational event, there will be demonstrations, music, food, animals and the final opportunity of the year to tour the restored Springfield Mills.

Traditional chicken keeping is new again, and visitors may learn the how-to’s with Philadelphia Backyard Chickens and a few live hens. Kids and adults alike will learn more about farm animals by interacting with Saul High School’s 4-H petting zoo.

The Insider Art Show & Sale will feature more than 20 artisans specializing in glass blowing, to woodworking, to photography. Stock up your gift closet, start your holiday shopping or treat yourself to one, or two, of the many hand-crafted pieces on display.

Enjoy a seasonal beer and/or wine to compliment the popular Farm Day lunch of cowboy chili and corn bread.
