Through the Years
Built in 1780, Clay Hill Farm was an original working farm complete with an iconic Big Red barn. The classic New England barn blends the rustic history of functionality with the strength of historical beauty. The nature trails in Clay Hill Farm’s sanctuary have a history all their own. Children’s birdhouses stand tall from past outreach programs, birdhouses memorializing loved ones of loyal Clay Hill diners and wedding couples through the years can be found throughout the sanctuary. A pond full of colorful Lilli pads, frogs and fish, start the journey through the nature paths to the fairy meadow, where “Fairy Houses”, organic homes for fairies, have been built by local children throughout the summer. Recently our Fairy Meadow has been opened up for events, festivals, food trucks and retreats for groups that prefer a more DIY vibe.
Outdoor Dining at Clay Hill farm took off a few years ago. Our Deck Dining has Mother Nature approved bug control so there is nothing to interrupt your serenity. The waterfalls, the bird songs and live background music piped to the deck allow you to take in all the beauty of sights and sounds- while our food and service take care of the rest.
