EVERY YEAR Madison County has OPEN FARM DAY.
This year 38 farms are participating. IT’s free to visit any farm who is participating.
We have passports at our Farmstand, and they are often found at local businesses. Some of you might have gotten one in the mail.
You can also check out :
https://openfarmdaymadisoncounty.com for the online version.
At Creekside Meadows we have:
self guided walking tours around the farm. We have moved our beef herd and some of the pigs closer to our barn so it’s really easy to see them up close. It’s 150 acre farm and we know most of you really don’t want to hike it all and our animals are usually in different further parts of the farm. So we make it easier.
Us 3 farmers will be on hand too.
PLUS, we will have some antique and old machinery plus more current equipment on display.
Sugar Shack is open so you can see what we do in the spring. Blacksmith shop is open and you might get lucky and Cam will be doing some demonstrations.
Our farmstore will be open so you can shop from our big freezers for our grassfed beef and pasture raised pork plus maple syrup and farmstead soaps AND woodworking items. We have some special sales and Meat packs for this day only so bring a cooler! We also take credit cards!
LIVE MUSIC by Johnny Shoes.

Our circa 1905 Detroit Engine Works SANDOW stationary engine will be running (we hope!) the 1905-1910 Ireland Iron Works Drag Saw (made in Norwich). Both are extremely rare- we haven’t found others and only out for 1 day a year- for OPEN FARM DAY. This is the coolest engine that has 3 moving parts and runs on kerosene, gasoline, alcohol and even… moonshine.
The drag saw was used to cut logs for firewood length instead of a 2 person saw and way before chainsaws. We’ll cut wood slices and they are for sale too.
We are NOT serving lunch but bring your own for a picnic here or try one of the many other farms offering it.
