Join us for our winter StoryWalk® on the farm! StoryWalk is an innovative and delightful way for children — and adults! — to enjoy reading and the outdoors at the same time. Conceived as a way to inspire parents, teachers, and caregivers to take young children outside for physical activity and to learn, StoryWalk helps build children’s interest in reading while encouraging healthy activity for everyone.
Laminated pages from a children’s book are attached to wooden stakes, which are installed along one of our farm’s trails. As you stroll down the trail, you’re directed to the next page in the story. What a lovely way to enjoy the farm!

**How to get to the StoryWalk**
When driving down Chestnut Hill Farm Road, park in the last parking lot on the right (“trailhead parking” on the map). Follow the Field Road up the hill. The fenced-off nesting birds habitat will be on your left. At the end of the field road, where the Maple Loop begins, you’ll find the start of the StoryWalk. Please sign our visitor’s log so we know you’ve participated in our StoryWalk! The short, easy hike into the woods will take you along a portion of the Oak Loop and back out to the fields. Then follow the Overlook Trail down the hill — it connects to the Field Road.
Please note that while we love dogs, they are not permitted at Chestnut Hill Farm.
