Each year, the agricultural exhibitors at the festival offer amazing, locally grown and produced products that celebrate the plentiful bounty of the North Quabbin and surrounding regions. Through on-going demonstrations and workshops you’ll learn to grow your own garlic, press cider, make an herbal tincture, learn to grow mushrooms, relish in roasting chiles, or promote pollinators. Celebrate this feast of the land, honor the good work of farmers, and rejoice in the harvest season.
