Programs & Events

Mount Hope Farm is hosting an intimate series of our new Scotch Tasting Club with Scotch expert Steve Healey whose tasting sessions at Carnegie Abbey are in high demand and sold out.

Join us on Thursday, February 8 at 6 pm for Scotch tasting and discussion.

Join us as Steve Healey, Carnegie's Abbey's Scotch expert, offers you tastings of different rare scotches with a discussion of where they are distilled, the distinctive characteristics of each and what complements each.

Steve is an expert in the hundreds of scotches that are imported to the U.S. and will guide each attendee through the nuances of how to savor the aroma, the color and how a splash of water enhances the flavor. Steve runs the sold out Scotch Club at Carnegie Abbey and does highly sought after private tastings for clients throughout New England. Featered in Golf Digest as Malt Disney.
Steve will explain how to tilt the glass to sniff the "nose" of each scotch, what the color of each variety tells you about origin and how best to taste to pick up the very subtle differences from one scotch to another.

Steve will use special scotch tasting glasses to enhance the flavor. Fruit, crudites and cheeses will enhance the tasting.

Tickets are $50 each.  Buy your ticket on Eventbrite or by calling the Farm at 401.254.1745.

Hayden Frank
Great New England Blizzards
By examining some of the Great New England Blizzards of the last 80 years, Hayden Frank, senior meteorologist with the National Weather Service, will describe the storms in terms of wind, snow, coastal flooding and overall impact.  He will explain how improvements in science and technology have allowed for both the public and emergency decision makers to better prepare for these forces of nature that are a major part of life in New England.  Mr. Frank is the Severe Weather, Marine and Outreach focal point at the National Oceanic Atmospheric Administration (NOAA)/NWS office in Taunton, MA

Wednesday, March 21 at 7 pm in the Barn
David Vallee
The Realities of Hurricanes in Southeast New England
H
urricanes and tropical storms are no strangers to southern New England.  Forty-five such storms have affected the region since 1900, thirteen of which made landfall with significant impact, including extensive property damage and loss of life.  How can we better prepare for these storms? David Vallee, hydrologist-in-charge at the Northeast River Forecast Center of the National Oceanic Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), will review the behavior of these landfalling tropical cyclones in southeast New England, focusing on their characteristics and impacts in terms of rainfall, wind, and storm surge.
