Mark your calendars!
The 1st Annual Run for the Farm
5k race will take place on April 23, 2016 at 10AM.
The race will start and finish on Happy Acres Farm.
Run the race for fun and exercise then stay to shop the farmstand! We ask that you please leave the pooches at home. Bring a picnic and enjoy the farm after the race. Happy Acres Farmers will be grilling up some premium hamburgers for sale! Trust me, they are delicious!
Register online here. Chip timing is provided by Greystone Racing. Registration is $25 after March 17. Online registration has a small processing fee.
Online registration extended to April 21!!
Race-day registration is from 8:30 to 9:30.
We have some great prizes and raffles shaping up!
Each age group winner will win a $5 gift certificates to the farm and the overall winners (male and female) will win a free two week membership to the New Milford Sports Club and a $50 gift certificate to Woodbridge Run Co!
Raffle prizes include a free print and frame from Visual Impact LLC, a special chocolate and wine tasting for 6 people at White Silo Winery including souvenir glasses, gift certificates from Sacred Grounds Coffee Roasters and treats from Happy Rainbows!
Some parking is available at the farm up to a limit (about 50-70 cars). We strongly suggest that you park at Volunteer Park at approximately 61 Gaylordsville Road, Sherman, CT and car-pool if possible. The park is just 1 mile south of the farm. It would help everyone out! Parking is also ‘ok’ along Edmonds Road and Route 39 (but only along the farm property!) Do not park on Taber Road or near the houses.
The course is an out and back that will start on the farm, turn right onto Taber Road, then left onto Spring Lake Road with a turn around on Spring Lake. Follow the course back to the farm. There will be water at the turn around spot.
