MEREDITH — After months of white, celebrate the colors of spring at Moulton Farm's annual open house from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday, May 3. "The colors in the greenhouses are always a beautiful sight," says John Moulton, the owner of the farm that's been in operation since the 1890's. "This year they are especially welcome."
Color from the thousands of flowers available at the farm is just one of the experiences to delight the senses at the open house. Taste will be celebrated as well. The farm's chef, Jonathan Diola, will be sampling some of the many dishes available from the farm's popular kitchen as well as items that can be made with the delicious seafood available from Sal's Fresh Seafood. Tricia Lutkus, the farm's head baker, will be offering samples of some of the baked goods available from the farm, as well as showing examples of the custom cakes that she creates for customers. Cider Bellies will be offering samples of their newest variations on their popular cider doughnuts.
The farm is an avid supporter of local businesses and small food producers, so there will also be samples of many different products available at the farm including locally raised meat and dairy products.
For those who delight in the feel of soil between their fingers, there will be plenty happening. Sue Dail, creator of many of the beautiful planters available from the farm, will be offering a free container gardening workshop. Kelly McAdam, from the University of New Hampshire's Cooperative Extension, will answer gardening questions from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.
In addition to the samples and free workshops, with the first 100 purchases of the day the farm will give out $5 in "bonus bucks" good towards a purchase during a future visit.
