Remick Country Doctor Farm Visit

We're lucky to live in a beautiful area with loads of
fun and historical places to visit with our little ones. Even in the deep of winter there are events going on at our local museums which celebrate the season. This past weekend we decided to check out Remick Country Doctor Museum and Farm.

Remick Farm is located in Tamworth, just north of
the Lakes Region. The farm, a gorgeous living history museum, focuses on highlighting the "medical life and agricultural way of life of a country doctor". They offer numerous hands-on events which are perfect for even the youngest of children to enjoy!

Last weekend was their annual Ice Harvesting event. Owl and I went with his best buddy and had a great time.

First stop, checking out the well pump ......

Owl loved watching the teams of oxen pulling the ice, from the lake, to the ice house.

Of course, visiting and petting the farm animals ( goats, sheep, ponies) is always a hit.

As was taking a horse drawn wagon ride...

The Farm has a free preschool story time the first Monday of each month. We haven't made it to one yet, but I've heard fabulous reviews from other mamas!

During NH's upcoming school vacation week ( February 27th-March 2nd) Remick Farm has daily children's activities scheduled for 11:30. Also on Tuesday (2/28) they have a snowshoe hike scheduled at 1:30 and on Wednesday (2/29) an art activity at 10am. Check out their calendar for more information!

If you visit on Saturday, even in winter, be sure to check out Tamworth's Farmer Market!
