“Kids” to see “kids”

Spring is here, warm weather, crocuses in bloom, and lambs at the Taylor Bray Farm in Yarmouth Port. The Taylor-Bray farm is one of those sweet little windows into the past history of Yarmouth. Consisting of roughly 22 acres, the farm was originally settled in 1639 by Richard Taylor. Some of the original buildings are still visible and being used.

LAMBS EAT OATS AND GOATS EAT OATS AND...

The farm was purchased in 1987 by the Town of Yarmouth and is operated as a traditional farm in order to preserve this precious view of the Cape Cod rural lifestyle. The farm is located on Bray Farm Rd. (Old King's Highway to Longfellow to Bray Farm Road), in Yarmouth Port. Bring the "kids" by to see the "kids" - a new batch has just been born!

Not a beach day? Things to do in Cape Cod

Not a beach day?

SAUNTER ALONG THE BOARDWALK

How about a leisurely walk through the Cape Cod Museum of Art located in Dennis Village on the grounds of the Cape Cod Playhouse Center for the Arts. The museum is celebrating thirty years of preserving and fostering art on Cape Cod. There are seven galleries, a sculpture garden, art classes, library, special events and even a screening room featuring independent films - definitely enough to fill an afternoon.

After the museum, you can stroll over to The Mercantile for a cup of coffee and some local color then maybe finish off with a drive through the neighborhoods enjoying the beautiful homes along the way and then land at Bass River Park overlooking the beautiful Bass River.

Get to know your neighbors

JOIN US AT THE AUCTION

The West Dennis Free Public Library is celebrating its 90th year of providing library services to the folks of Dennis. The new director, Jennie Wiley, has an event-filled summer planned. A Mother's Day Tea sponsored by The Friends of the West Dennis Free Public Library will take place on May 7th. This tradition marks the spring making mothers happy. Come by for tea, get to know your neighbors and renew acquaintances.

Also, on June 12th the library will be hosting a "Taste of Dennis" dinner and auction. Great food and many interesting items on which to bid including an O'Day Vanguard sailboat and trailer. Next time you are at the library take a look--the sailboat is right out front!

Fishing on Cape Cod

TOM MATTHEWS POND

In the beginning of April, trout raised at the Sandwich Fish Hatchery are released throughout Cape Cod and the rest of the State. The hatchery is the oldest in the Country and houses about half a million fish. This year 5,500 trout were released into Scorton Creek between Barnstable and Sandwich. For more information on the hatchery see www.mass.gov/dfwele/dfw/index.htm.

There are many opportunities for anglers on the Cape from deep sea fishing, surf fishing to freshwater trout and bass fishing. The Bass River Rod and Gun Club in Yarmouth Port even sponsors a fishing derby (June 5th) this year. The Rod and Gun Club also holds a traditional Cape Cod clam bake open to the public every summer.

Client Testimonials

Having purchased multiple properties in recent years, I can say unequivocally that Ed and Agnes are the two best buyers’ agents with whom I’ve ever worked.   In my experience, their responsiveness, honest and timely advice and knowledge of the Cape’s real estate market are unmatched.  Moreover, even though I was living a thousand miles away during my property search and not always available to visit the area, they did an excellent job of helping me select a home, even going so far as to take extra photos of the property and the surrounding neighborhood to ensure that it met my criteria.
