On Sunday, September 18th, we'll have a birthday party by digging up potatoes and, through the magic of chopping and deep-frying, turning them into tater tots.

We'll be digging potatoes at Keith's Farm:

1149 Main Street
Acushnet, MA
(+1) 508-763-2622

Getting to Keith's Farm[edit]

Keith's Farm is about an hour drive away from Boston and, due to tie replacement, there is no commuter rail service to anywhere within 50km of the farm over the weekend.

Of course, not everybody needs to drive down to pull the potatoes out of the ground and folks are welcome to join for just breakfast or just the tater tot making and eating in the afternoon.

If you have a car or zip car and can carpool, folks in the car can split the cost of the car rental or gas, etc.
