SOUTHINGTON – Bradley Mountain Farm invites the community to come and enjoy a "Picnic on the Pasture" on Fridays and Saturdays starting Sept. 25.

Anneliese Dadras, owner of Bradley Mountain Farm, invites the community to enjoy the fall weather at the farm at 537 Shuttle Meadow Road. Picnic on the Pasture will be offered from 6 to 8 p.m. on Sept. 25 and 26, Oct. 2 and 3 and Oct. 9 and 10. People will be able to relax on the pasture, maintaining social distancing, while the goats graze.

Dadras said that Picnic on the Pasture will also include a farm tour, an opportunity to meet with the herd and a "roaring bonfire."

"Enjoy a beautiful evening under the wide-open sky while the goats graze," said Dadras. "Stop by the barn to see nightly chores being done."

Participants in Picnic on the Pasture can also take advantage of walking trails around Crescent Lake.

"You can even fish on Crescent Lake if that suits your fancy," said Dadras. "It’s a great way to enjoy an outdoor evening."

Participants in Picnic on the Pasture will receive a complimentary bag of goat food to feed the herd.

All social distancing guidelines will apply and designated picnic spots will be spread out through the pasture.

"Please bring your own lawn chair, a blanket, a flashlight, fishing poles, and a cooler with food and drinks and have a happy herding," Dadras added.

Minors cannot make reservations alone and must be accompanied by an adult during the session. No alcoholic beverages are permitted.

Tickets are $15 for two hours, with $10 for each additional guest up to $40 for four additional guests.
