EASTON--Shop for your Thanksgiving table while having a whole lot of fun! Silverman’s Farm in Easton is busy this time of year, as folks flock to the farm market for sixteen varieties of pie, baked fresh on-property.
“You get your apples, your cider and your pies,” laughs owner Irv Silverman. “What more could you want?”
But, of course, there is more to this bucolic spot. Silverman’s is famous for “pick your own” raspberries, blueberries, peaches and apples. Even though picking season is done, Silverman’s still runs tractor rides into the gorgeous hills, dotted with fruit trees. “It’s a pretty view! There’s nice pumpkins,” says Katie Young of Sandy Hook, holding her small daughter. “We’re going to go see the animals across the street!”
The Petting Zoo is home to many furry friends, such as a buffalo, donkey, goats and sheep. Little kids are drawn to the new village featuring about 100 rabbits! “On the weekend, we let them pet the bunnies,” says manager Judy Smith.
Children also love the new Cereal Bowl play space. “There’s ten tons of kernel corn a foot deep, surrounded by hay bales, so it makes it look like a bowl,” says Irv Silverman, proud of the 50-acre farm started by his dad in the 1920s. “You go for a day trip and you’re doing all kinds of things, being entertained, and you’re going shopping at the same time and showing kids what the country life was like.”
The Farm Market and Petting Zoo will be open through Christmas, closed for January and February, and then they re-opening in early spring.
