Looking for a nice day out in the country? Possibly you have a little “Spring Fever” with all this warm weather?
Andy Mack Jr. has cooked something up for you today. Apple Fritters at the farm stand on Mammoth road all to benefit Warm homes! This event kicks off from 1 to 4 pm at the Farm Market, the farm fresh apples from Londonderry orchards will be taken directly from the climate controlled storage room and made into apple fritters as you watch.
Host Brian Battle from 106.3 Frank FM will have the station at the farmstand broadcasting Live from Londonderry. If you are looking for a country drive the farm and historic Londonderry is just 15 minutes from the Massachusetts boarder and only 45 miles from the center of Boston. The trails are open too with some spectacular views of the wetlands, and Adams Pond with it’s dramatic (at least with all this rain it is!) waterfall on the connector trail between two orchards. If you do want to hike, bring some good Gortex boots, it’s mud season.
Or just browse the stand and enjoy the Fritters to benefit Warm Homes. This program helps 60 to 80 families each year in Londonderry providing a one time delivery of heating fuel. The program runs with volunteer help and 100% of the Warm Homes donations go directly to fuel that is delivered to the heating fuel tank of those in need. No middle men, no management fees, no paid directors.
In case you missed it…
- Farm Fresh Fritters from 1pm to 4pm
- Today March 20th
- At Mack’s Apple Farm Stand on Mammoth Road
The concept is a little like like the farm fresh apples you can pick up today at Mack’s Apples, no middle men fresh from last years crop.
Andy Mack Jr. was excited at sunrise this morning! “12 hours ’til we light the bonfire! We’re also cookin’ up apple fritters today from 1-4 at our store as a fundraiser for Warm Homes.” he said in the social media outlet twitter. If you live in the region drive over from Nashua, Manchester or up from Salem to enjoy one of the largest bonfires you will see. Down by the pond on the west side of the road just near the farm stand. Please stay off the fields with your cars and trucks, it gets rather soft this time of year.
