Drop-In Chowder & Popovers: Rabbit Hill Farm

May 19, 2018 @ 11:30 am - 1:30 pm

DROP IN CHOWDER: Rabbit Hill Farm

Rabbit Hill, an Emily Muir designed cottage, boasts expansive views of Rabbit Island and Crocket Cove. Enjoy treetop birding while dining on Cheryl Wixson’s Kitchen Clam Chowder, handcrafted organic cider and hot popovers. We’ll be featuring tastes of three fresh jams:  Strawberry Rhubarb, Wild Blueberry, and Spiced Peach Butter.

Bring the whole family for lunch, then to hike to shore, or explore the adjacent Crockett Cove Woods Preserve.  Watch the eagles fly by and use binoculars to focus on the osprey fishing in the cove.  Listen for warblers and the drum roll of the pileated woodpecker.
