Hearty Souls Brave New Year's Cold for Exercise and Refreshment


On January 2nd, over a dozen hearty souls joined the Wakefield Estate staff for a robust tour of the estate’s wintery landscape, and then had a chance to warm up by enjoying soup next to the farmhouse fire.


Participants noted abundant evidence of recent deer activity despite efforts to protect specimens with fencing. A pair of cork tree rows planted at the property’s southeast and northwest boundaries are especially sculptural and stunning during the winter months. On the last Friday of the winter months, we will again be hosting our “stone soup” lunches. New this year, we are inviting local groups and experts to give a brief talk on topics related to New England’s winters followed by warm soup and bread by the woodstove.
