WTF’s Open (Farm) House

The Wakeman Town Farm board has a lot to be thankful for this holiday season.

And they’ll say “thanks” to everyone in town who worked with them to bring former-and-present farm stewards Mike and Carrie Aitkenhead “home for the holidays” with an open farm house.

On December 11 (Wakeman Town Farm, 134 Cross Highway, 11 a.m.-1 p.m., $5), Westporters are invited to raise a cup (cider), and toast both the return of Mike and Carrie and the reopening of the Town Farm to the public.

The Aitkenhead family.

Also on tap:  the unveiling of Wakeman Town Farm’s new logo, designed by  Miggs Burroughs.  Mugs, t-shirts and hats with the new logo will be available for holiday gift giving.

Youngsters can decorate cookies and make gingerbread homes, while adults learn about the Town Farm’s upcoming events:  educational programs, kids’ camps, and internships focusing on sustainable farming.

Welcome home, indeed!

  1. Thanks, Dan! So happy to welcome the Aitkenheads home for the holidays. Just wanted to note that the mugs will have the new logos and the hats and Ts will have the ever-popular original “WTF” logo that became an instant cult classic.
