Stewart Balk Presents a History of Local Farming

Adapted from a Historical Society of Greenfield press release:

Since 1977, three generations have run Northfield’s Balky Farm, offering meats, wool products and mulch hay. They pasture-raise goat, sheep, and pigs and sell fresh eggs. In addition, they have beautiful 100% wool yarns in natural and hand-dyed colors, and rovings ready for spinning or needle felting, which they sell at the farm stand. Roving samplers and needle feltings supplies also are available, as are wool blankets, hats, scarves, needle felted items, and sheepskins, along with farm-fresh vegetables, blueberries, and jams.  On Tuesday, June 18th, Stewart Balk will talk about Northfield’s Balky Farm at the Historical Society of Greenfield.

The talk will be followed by time for informal questions and comments from the audience. Historical Society of Greenfield programs are free and open to the public. The Society also appreciates voluntary donations of any amount, so a donations jar will be available in order to help defray the costs of these presentations.

Doors open at 6:30, talk begins at 7:00 p.m.  Historical Society of Greenfield, 43 Church Street (at the corner of Union), Greenfield.
