TAMWORTH VILLAGE, N.H. — At Remick Country Doctor Museum & Farm in Tamworth Village, a slow snow melt, coupled with colder than average temperatures and an unfortunate weather forecast, is causing a postponement of their Spring On The Farm event previously set for Saturday, April 20, 2019. The new event date will be Saturday, June 8, 2019, 11 a.m.–3 p.m.
While the delay may mean disappointment for visitors who planned to attend the event, the museum’s executive director, Cara Sutherland, said, “The welfare of our animals, as well as the experience of our visitors, are of the utmost importance to us. On the new date we will be able to assure our valued visitors of a quality event as well as making sure it’s one that supports the welfare of our baby animals. We know the public will support us in that cause.”
Expectant visitors’ disappointments may be eased when they learn piglets and a calf are due to be born on the farm by June 8 and will be on view alongside earlier spring arrivals—goat kids and lambs.
Plans for the postponed event remain the same. Along with the main feature of baby farm animal meet and greets, numerous hands-on activities, a Remick Farm Olympics obstacle course, a scavenger hunt and more will round out the day. The museum advises interested persons to check their website for updated details or call 603-323-7591 for more information.
