Directions to Warner Farm (event begins there at 9:30a.m.): 

All: Warner Farm's strawberry fields are NOT in the same place as Mike's Maze. Mike's Maze is on Route 47. The strawberry fields are on Old Amherst Road, which is a connector road between Routes 47 and 116. Camp staff will be in the parking lot to greet you!

From Amherst: Take your pick of Route 47N or 116N. Headed north on 47, Old Amherst Road will be a right hand turn just before Millstone Market. Headed north on 116, Old Amherst Road will be 8.7 miles north of the junction of Routes 9 and 116. If you pass N Silver Lane on your right, you just missed it. You have to go into the big driveway like you're going to Goten restaurant - it's a little weird. Check a map or your GPS first if you're taking 116 so you know what to expect. 

From Northampton: Take exit 24 off of I-91. Take a right off the exit ramp and then take your first right onto Route 116S. Cross the bridge into Sunderland and turn right onto Route 47 at the first traffic light after the bridge. After about a half mile, turn left onto Old Amherst Road, just after you pass Millstone Market.  

From Greenfield: Take I-91S to exit 24. Turn left onto Routes 5&10N. Turn right onto Route 116S and follow remaining directions from Northampton. 


Directions from Warner Farm to Robariah Farms  at 5 Captain Lathrop Drive in South Deerfield (at 10:45am, we will all caravan to Robariah Farms):

Take Old Amherst Road back out to Route 47. Go North on 47 and then take a left onto Route 116 in Sunderland. Cross the bridge over the CT River into South Deerfield and turn right at the first traffic light onto Sugarloaf Street. In about a half mile, you'll be in the little village with a water fountain and statue. Veer right onto North Main Street so that you pass the CISA building on your right, and soon after Greenfield Savings Bank on your left. Take your third right onto Captain Lathrop Drive, just after you see a sign for Pelican (a company of some sort) on your left. Robariah Farms is the first house on your left - yellow farmhouse with a pond, a red barn and ducks quacking around. Park on the road and come on up!
