This attraction is permanently closed as my husband and I found out when we went in search of it.

Yankee Siege Trebuchet

The Yankee Farmer is a Retail nursery/veggie stand owned by the Siegar's Family. Across the street is the Yankee Siege, 25,000 lb. trebuchet that has held the world punkin chunkin record at nearly 2,000 feet. I'm the next door neighbor it's aimed at!

Yankee Siege Catapult

Yankee Siege is a 40,000 lb. working catapult in Greenfield, New Hampshire. It stands over a 100 feet tall and is designed to work exactly as ancient catapults did, and is capable of throwing 250 lbs.

The artist who first conceived it has an entire medieval backdrop that is constantly growing. Yankee Siege is currently surrounded by an actual moat, and a large metal castle on the hill which the catapult pitches pumpkins against every weekend in the fall! The Trojan Horse is also located across the street. I stumbled upon this quite by accident and was immediately riveted. One of the most fascinating and skilled replications I have ever seen. I am looking forward to returning in October to see the catapult in action!!
