Farmer to speak Tuesday at Greenfield Historical Society
GREENFIELD — Stewart Balk will talk about Northfield’s Balky Farm at the Historical Society of Greenfield on Tuesday. Doors open at 6:30 and the talk begins at 7.
Since 1977, three generations have run Balky Farm, offering meats, wool products and mulch hay. They pasture-raise goat, sheep, and pigs and sell fresh eggs. In addition, they have 100 percent wool yarns in natural and hand-dyed colors, and rovings ready for spinning or needle felting, which they sell at the farm stand. Roving samplers and needle feltings supplies also are available, as are wool blankets, hats, scarves, needle felted items and sheepskins, along with farm-fresh vegetables, blueberries and jams.
The talk will be followed by time for informal questions and comments from the audience. Historical Society of Greenfield programs at 43 Church St. are free and open to the public.
The society also accepts donations of any amount to help defray the costs of these presentations.
