4th Annual 5K Trail Run/Walk

posted Sep 3, 2017, 10:50 AM by John Sowles   [ updated Sep 3, 2017, 10:55 AM ]

Saturday, Sept. 16, 8 am start

Skyline Farm is hosting their 4th annual Trail Run/Walk. This fun, family oriented race, which is designed to introduce the community to Skyline’s trail network, will begin and end at the Visitor Center. The race is scheduled early so that people can attend North Yarmouth Fun Day Parade and the events that follow. Last year the field of enthusiastic sprinters and ramblers ranged in age from 8 to 88. During post race chatter there was praise for the single loop course that followed trails through Skyline, as well as Yarmouth Water District. At least one or two participants claimed they were transformed from walkers to runners mid-race! Pies will be awarded to the top male and female finishers in eight age categories, and free T-shirts are available for the first 50 registrants. Eric Cobb from Back 40 Timing will be timing the race. 

 

You can find more information and registration instructions at runsignup.com, search: Skyline Farm 5k. You can also contact Skyline Farm Trustee, Jennifer Robbins at (207) 415-6830 or info@skylinefarm.org.

Dr. Dave Jefferson - Author Talk and Book Signing

posted Sep 3, 2017, 10:49 AM by John Sowles   [ updated Sep 4, 2017, 11:29 PM ]

Sunday, Sept. 17, 1 pm

Dr. Dave Jefferson, well-known equine veterinarian and writer, will host a book signing and storytelling session at Skyline Farm on Sunday, Sept. 17, 1 p.m. He will pull stories – and no doubt, add colorful embellishments! – from his new book, Maine Horse Doctor, On the Road with Dr J.

 

The book features more than 100 tales of real-life experiences helping horses and horse owners throughout New England.  Some of Dave’s stories are funny, others a bit sad; all aim to educate and entertain you on responsible horse care.

 

Following his talk, Dave will answer questions and autograph copies of his book for those who wish. 

 

Books will be available at the discounted rate of $16.  A portion of the proceeds will go to support local horse charities – look for details on which ones you may vote for later this year at:

Soup & Cider Pressing Day with North Yarmouth Historical Society

posted Sep 3, 2017, 10:48 AM by John Sowles   [ updated Sep 4, 2017, 11:33 PM ]

Sunday, Oct. 15 -  12-3 p.m.

Beautiful Skyline Farm, North Yarmouth Historical's venerable cider press‚ and bushels of apples from Hansel's Orchard ... the perfect combination for a brisk Maine October day. This is fall at its best!

 

Come pitch apples into the hopper of the cider press, help turn the crank, and watch the liquid gold pour away. There will be 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. Please call (207) 846-4379 to let us know what you can bring.

 

This beloved event is open to all. Walk Skyline's trails… peek into the museum... have a hearty lunch ... drink 100% fresh cider ... pick a bushel of apples down the road at Hansel's Orchard. 

 

An additional feature will be miniature horse-drawn wagon rides by Ben Lapointe of Greene, back by popular demand from Skyline’s Sleigh Day and Plow Day events. 

Enjoy a beautiful fall day. Dress warmly! Donations are welcomed.
