Spencer-Peirce-Little Farm, 5 Little's Lane, Newbury, Mass.

Take a step back in time and enjoy a spring day on the farm. Enjoy traditional New England music, watch as champion hand-shearer Kevin Ford carefully clips our resident sheep. Take a wagon ride and cheer on your favorite teams of the Essex Base Ball Association as they play using 1860s rules. At these fun, historically accurate games, players pitch underhand, a ball bounced once and caught is an out, and no gloves are allowed. Snacks, baseballs, and cards are available for purchase. Grass field seating: bring blankets and lawn chairs. No reserved seating. In partnership with the Essex Base Ball Association and Ipswich Ale Brewery.
