Beekeeping, Hops Growing, Horseshoeing, No Till Drill, Pickling Potatoes, Horse Dentistry, Hay Baling (with horses), Live Music, Food Vendors are just a few of the activities you can experience at this great local farm fair in Aroostook County.
Staff members from Maine Farmland Trust, Maine Organic Farmers and Gardeners Association and Aroostook County Farm Bureau will hold a “Talk About” for farmers in the Big Tent. Let’s talk about what’s working for farmers in Aroostook County, and what’s not working—markets, processing plants, transportation, and land access. What do farmers need for resources that are not available? How can farmers expand markets and diversify production? We’ll be available to talk about these and other issues throughout the fair weekend. Look for a sign in the Big Tent for appointed times, or just stop by and we’ll get started talking about what’s on your mind.
