Guests will be able to stroll the grounds at their leisure or take a more formal guided tour of the unique historic property. Kids can romp, discover how antique lawnmowers and farm implements worked, pet the sheep and check out the chickens.   The harvest table will be laden with a bounteous, seasonal buffet catered by John Barricelli, celebrity chef, author, host of Everyday Baking and owner of The SoNo Baking Company & Cafe. Food, wine and beer are included in the ticket price.   French Farm is a vital part of Greenwich’s historic landscape. It is comprised of the remaining four-acre heart of the 35-acre residential farm built in 1905-1910 by AIA President, H. Van Buren Magonigle for Mary Billings French. It was the first Greenwich property listed on the National Register of Historic Places. A living work of art created by the late David Wierdsma, French Farm skillfully weaves natural and man-made objects amongst specimen plantings in garden rooms that flow from one theme to another. The farm also features charming outbuildings including a chicken coop, cow barn and silo.  Don’t miss this popular event. Space is limited and reservations are required.
