Day Tripper Dispatches


Horsing Around at Sweet Meadow Farm

In August, we headed out to celebrate a friend’s birthday party at Sweet Meadow Farm in Sherborn (where my daughter and her friend Anna blissfully attended camp this summer). Owner Patty Michaud starts birthday parties at the barn and kids get to work with ponies, then tack up the horses. Each guest gets to ride and feed the horses. Then everyone heads up to the pet store at the Michauds’ house, where they can observe and handle the guinea pigs, kittens, birds, and other small animals. Finally, guests enjoy a small party at the farm house or the new indoor barn, which includes a Sweet Meadow gift for the birthday girl. It’s a bit pricey at about $30 per guest, but we are huge fans of Sweet Meadow. The Michaud family gives back to their community by donating equine therapy, and they do a great job of educating kids about animal care and enjoyment. (Grownup Alert: Sweet Meadow is also near the Natick Mall if you want to drop off!)
