Weekend Mini-Excursion: McNamara's Dairy and Mac's Maple
Go for the maple creamees, stay for some retail therapy
Looking for something fun to do this weekend? Why not take a trip out to McNamara Farm in Plainfield, NH?
Definitely say yes to the maple sugar candy sprinkles.
Just a few minutes south of the hustle and bustle of West Lebanon it's the perfect opportunity to take a short and beautiful drive along an undeveloped section of the Connecticut River. You'll end up at a fully working farm with a retail space and maple creamees. (Go for the maple creamees, stay for the retail space and pastoral setting.)
To get there, head down 12A past Home Depot and the Transfer station, in a mile or so turn right onto River Road. Pass the Edgewater Farm greenhouses (or better yet, stop there and pick up some plants). Drive another mile or so and look for the little ice cream cone statue on the left. Turn into the driveway, park, enjoy.
