Silverbrook Farm heralds the arrival of autumn with two packed months of fall-themed family attractions included with admission. Parents and progeny crunch leaves underfoot as they hone their ability to navigate through carbs in the corn maze or head toward horse-powered transit for a hayride. Pony rides and proximity to resident farm animals enchant kids, as does Mother Goose story time, visits with Little Bo Peep, and political commentary from Little Miss Muffet. Pumpkin-painting and face-painting booths doll up human and gourd counterparts in matching makeup, and one takeaway sugar pumpkin per guest extends the fall festivities.
Horses trot merrily at Silverbrook Farm, towing carts and bushels of fresh, crisp vegetables behind them. Here, agriculturalists eschew tractors and machinery whenever possible, forcing the steeds to whinny their best impressions of diesel engines instead. While refraining from fertilizers, pesticides or herbicides on their crops, the farmers also use all-natural processes when tending to their livestock, resulting in a bounty of free-range eggs and beef from cows fed with grass rather than the typical Funyuns.
Along with fresh food, philanthropy also thrives at the farm. After baking up pillowy loaves onsite, The Pereira Bread Co. sets aside a portion of its proceeds to donate to Citizen Schools of Massachusetts, and Silverbrook hosts regular events such as the Great Pumpkin Festival in October, appearances from Santa in December, and family movie nights under the stars' outdated, black-and-white constellations.
