Harvest the Season at Button Farm

Saturday October 24, 2020 @ 12-3PM

October is the perfect season to get out and about at Button Farm. We offer self-guided experiences on Saturdays for the next two weekends.

Each week we feature self-guided tours, demonstrations, close encounters with animals and scavenger hunts. Parking is $10 per vehicle.

All of the activities are SELF-GUIDED and FREE! Check out this week’s activities below or on our calendar and reserve your self-guided tour today!

Exploration Weekend at Button Farm

Saturday October 24, 2020 @ 12-3PM

This will be the perfect weekend to come out and recreate.

Bring a picnic lunch to the farm and bask in autumn with your family and friends.

Or enjoy some of the more than 20 miles of hiker, biker and equestrian trails that begin at our front drive, and wind their way through the 6,300 acre Seneca Creek State Park.  

Take a stroll down to historic Black Rock Mill, just a few minutes walk from the farm, and walk or wade at Seneca Creek on the last of these summer-like days.

Emancipation Day Weekend

Saturday October 31, 2020 @ 12-3PM

Celebrate the day in 1864 when Maryland changed its constitution to abolish slavery six months before the end of the Civil War.

The day will include an emancipation-themed self-guided tour of the farm and Slave Cemetery accessible by your phone through our QR portal. Scavenger hunts, farm animals, hands-on history and musical acts will help to round out the day.
