Build Your Best at the Scarecrow Contest

Press Releases - September 24, 2012

Fun and food will be in abundance at Moulton Farm’s Foliage Festival on Saturday and Sunday, September 29 and 30. The festival, which will run both days from 10am to 3pm, includes family fun activities including tractor rides, visits with farm animals, a scarecrow building contest, a magic show and more.

The scarecrow building contest on Saturday is free and open to all ages. The farm will supply the hay, and entrants provide the clothing and creativity. Pumpkins appropriately sized for heads will be available for purchase if participants wish to use them. Scarecrows can be built starting any time after 10 am, but must be finished by 3pm on Saturday, when the judging takes place.  Entrants do not need to be present to win.

Winners will receive a certificate for free cider doughnuts from Cider Bellies and will be announced on the farm’s Facebook page and web site. On Sunday, the farm will host Tricky Dick’s Magic Show at 1pm as well as pumpkin bowling and other activities.

Moulton Farm is located at 18 Quarry Road off Route 25 in Meredith. The farm practices sustainable agriculture and is dedicated to providing the highest quality fruits and vegetables while preserving its rich soil for future generations. In addition to growing its own produce, the farm offers pumpkins, fall decorating supplies, cider doughnuts, baked goods and a quality selection of cheeses, meats, and other items from northern New England producers.
