The Dudley Farm Museum and Farmers’ Market invite you to celebrate the 2015 holiday season on December 5th and 12th, from 9 AM to 2 PM. The Museum will be open for “Cookies and Carols” at their Holiday Open House and the Munger Barn will host the 20th annual Holiday Market.

See our 1845 Farmhouse decorated for the holidays and enjoy live dulcimer music and complimentary mulled cider and cookies served in the dining room. All are invited to join in singing carols in the parlor accompanied by music played on our 1856 melodeon. The Farmhouse will also have its annual cookie sale to benefit the Museum, and free drawings for the floral centerpieces on display. The centerpieces are designed and donated by Michael Russo of Trout Lily Farm and Janet Dudley.
