Coggeshall Farm Museum, a coastal living-history museum, is pleased to announce the official start of its 2024 season with an Opening Day on Saturday, April 13. The public is invited to celebrate the season while exploring the scenic farm and enjoying various family-friendly activities.

From 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., Coggeshall Farm will be offering a fun and educational outdoor experience for all ages. Guests can immerse themselves in the rich history of the farm with live demonstrations and engaging conversations with historians at the Blacksmith Shop and the Cheese House. Friendly farm animals will be onsite, including chicks, piglets from Gnarly Vines Farm and sheep that are preparing for lambing. In addition to traditional farm activities, there will be fun crafts and games for young visitors and their families, as well as an expansive kitchen garden teeming with new plantings and aromatic herbs and a new apple orchard.

“Spring is a special time at Coggeshall Farm. We’ve been eagerly awaiting Opening Day and the return of guests to the farm to experience all we have to offer,” said Executive Director Shelli Costa. “From festivals to field trips to family-friendly activities, we look forward to creating memorable experiences for our visitors this season.”
