The Insiders: Pet some animals and learn how to farm

It’s not every day you get to meet a real life farmer.

But today, consider yourself lucky because the New Hampshire Farm Bureau has you covered with the Young Farmers Open House at its headquarters, 295 Sheep Davis Road. Dairy and vegetable farmers will talk about some tricks of the trade, and an information booth will tell you exactly how to join the farm bureau. Just think, now you can finally get all those milking cows you’ve been talking about.

And what open house associated with farming would be complete without a petting zoo? The answer is none and that’s why there will be goats, chickens, a calf and a rabbit. The event runs from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. and is free and open to the public.

Nothing says happy Saturday like a trip to the movies. So if you’re in the mood to see something a little different, head over to Red River Theatres for the N.H. High School Short Film Festival at noon. The sixth annual event will feature 25 movies, judged on originality, cinematic storytelling and technical execution, and is expected to last two hours. Tickets are $7 and you’ll probably see some blood and guts. Just in case you needed any extra incentive.
