Back to the farm!
Heritage Farm is growing again this summer…not with the addition of new buildings, but with a crop of soybeans. The City of Brunswick has leased the farm portion of the property to a local farmer who will be clearing some of the small trees that have grown over the past few years of non-use, tilling the earth and planting seeds for a fall harvest. The soybean farm will make an excellent backdrop to the community gardens, and bring an abundance of farming activity to the home of the Brunswick Area Historical Society.
Proceeds from the lease will be donated to the Society for its Save the Farm fund. Work is nearing completion on the farmhouse renovation in anticipation of reopening to the public this year, as part of the Community’s 200th birthday celebration. The weekly Farmers Market is now open on Sundays from 11 am – 3 pm. A special historical bus tour is being planned for late summer for community members to learn about the early days of Brunswick. More information can be found on the Historical Society website at www.brunswickhistory.com.
