The Wool Arts Tourwill take us to four local farms (located between Hillsboro and Hancock) that are owned and operated by lovers of the natural fibers that are used for SpinningYarn and for Knittingand Weavingand Felting– and of the animals that produce those fibers.
Each farm will host (in “Crafts Fair” fashion) anywhere from 5 to 15 other Fiber Artists and Artisansdisplaying and selling the items that they make by hand.
There are basically two possible routes to travel between the four farms. Route 202 can be used as the Central Corridor – but Route 202 is straight and boring.
Joyce and I have plotted a second route that is much more interesting – and prettier – but the fact is that, in this part of the State, when you get off the “Numbered Roads” there’s a good chance that you’ll be on dirt roads. If you really want to avoid dirt roads, then I suggest that you NOT follow us, but take the Route 202 option. We just drive slowly on the dirt.
A caveat here, even if you do use Route 202, one farm – The Spring Pond Farm – is on a dirt road. You cannot get to Spring Pond Farmwithout driving almost a mile on dirt.
We plan to start the day with Breakfast/Lunch at Daniel’s in Henniker and plan to be there when they open at 11:30. We’ll expect to leave Daniel’s at about 12:30/12:45 and spend the rest of the day on the Tour – with probably ½ hour to 45 minutes at each farm.
The Tour officially ends at 5:00, so you’ll have plenty of time to get home before dark.
Please let me know if you would like to join us. We do have to give Daniel’s an idea of how many mouths they will have to feed.
