Strawbarb Rhuberry Fest at Sheep Hill in Williamstown Saturday June 5th, 3 - 5 PM

The Williamstown Rural Lands Foundation invites chefs and home bakers to submit rhubarb-inspired creations to its annual Strawbarb and Rhuberry celebration on Saturday June 5th from 3-5 PM at the WRLF's Sheep Hill headquarters in Williamstown. Rhubarb Ginger muffins, Strawberry Rhubarb pie, Rhubarb Crumble are a few of the offerings that might be available. Enter your favorite rhubarb dish for a chance to win a Sheep Hill People's Choice award. Visitors will be invited to 'taste' the splendiferous array of rhubarb creations and submit votes for first and second places. Prizes will be given to these two most popular dishes.

Prior to the "Tasting" there will be a demonstration in planting and growing Rhubarb in our region along with some history of this interesting plant by amateur gardener extraordinaire and local rhubarb enthusiast Margie March.

Rain or shine there will be nature-inspired crafts inside the farm house. Fair weather family activities include an outdoor scavenger hunt, self-guided nature hikes around the property, and checking out the nature cabin and the frog pond.

Rhubarb creations can be dropped off at Sheep Hill Friday afternoon June 4 between 3 and 5 PM, or between 1 and 2:30 PM on Saturday. In lieu of contributing a dish, guests may make a "Tasting" donation (Suggested: $5 per person non-member /$3 member.)

The Williamstown Rural Lands Foundation is a non-profit member-supported land conservation trust. Its Sheep Hill conservation property and headquarters are located at 671 Cold Spring Road (Routes 7 & 2), approximately one mile south of the rotary in Williamstown.
