Museum Exhibit - Child Size Vehicles: From the Sublime to the Ridiculous -- Open Sundays Sept 9 - Oct 28 -- 1-4PM or by appointment.

posted Sep 1, 2018, 4:11 AM by John Sowles   [ updated Sep 9, 2018, 5:24 AM ]

Most “normal” sized carriages and sleighs were built for horses. Skyline's new museum exhibit highlights horse sized vehicles next to their smaller counterparts built for cob, pony, and miniature horses. Children have a better imagination as to what was going to pull their appropriately sized vehicle. They often “put to” whatever was available, such as dog(s), goat(s), rooster(s), baby and adult oxen, ostrich, mule, donkey, burro, and yes, a pony.

 A few of the child sized vehicles on display will be (but are not limited to): Hay Wagon, Sleigh(s), Goat or Dog Cart, Covered Wagon, Wicker Governess Cart, Bench Sled, Village Cart, Runabouts, Basket Carriage, and a few rare surprises.

The “Triple Mountain Model Horses” Breyer Horse-drawn vehicle display will continue.

Free admission; Donations appreciated.

Oct 14 Soup & Cider Day, Sunday, noon-3 pm

posted Sep 1, 2018, 4:09 AM by John Sowles   [ updated Sep 9, 2018, 5:25 AM ]

Beautiful Skyline Farm, North Yarmouth Historical's newly-refurbished cider press‚ and bushels of local apples: the perfect combination for a brisk Maine October day. This is fall at its best!

Fall is in the air and the annual collaboration between North Yarmouth Historical Society and Skyline Farm is not far away!

This family friendly event is a wonderful time to see your neighbors and celebrate the season.

Pitch apples into the hopper of the cider press, turn the crank, and watch the liquid gold pour away. Plenty of cider for all and delicious homemade soup and breads, too.

Soup & Cider Day is traditionally a real community affair and, as always, we're asking for a few good cooks to contribute a Crockpot of your best soup or your favorite cornbread or rolls. Every year brings a new culinary delight, thanks to talented and generous local kitchen experts.

Oct 24 Get Out! NatureWalk, Wed., 1:30 pm

posted Sep 1, 2018, 4:08 AM by John Sowles   [ updated Sep 9, 2018, 5:27 AM ]

Come to Skyline Farm for “Seasonal Change,” a guided adventure led by volunteer naturalist Karen Herold. Please be mindful of the weather, and dress accordingly. Bring appropriate gear, snacks and a thermos or water bottle. 

Get Out! Nature Walks, co-sponsored by the Royal River Conservation Trust and Chebeague and Cumberland Land Trust, take place once-per-month on Wednesday afternoons. The excursions are volunteer-led regular trips with trained master naturalists and other skilled volunteer leaders. Join the group for a well-planned, no cost, outing held rain, snow or shine.

 As is the case with all such programs, outings are great for older kids, but inappropriate for folks under age 6. Curriculums are targeted at adults and engaged youth. Additionally, because the purpose is nature observation, no dogs, please.
