Isn’t our local Harvest Season just wonderful?. Remember that you may either donate or get surplus produce at either the vegetable stand on the former Nabo’s property or the Bethel library. Probably you’re enjoying our local farmers’ markets. And here’s a special opportunity to thank those local farmers and experience more of their farms:

On Sunday, September 12, from 1-4 p.m. the first annual Mahoosuc Art and Agriculture Tour will happen, with many inviting activities and products featured. Six farms and 15 local artists will show and sell their beautiful products. There are posters around the community, inviting us to “an afternoon of touring family farms to enjoy the Mahoosuc’s rich agricultural and artistic offerings.

Meet local artists, support local food producers, and enjoy tasty specialties of the region. All sites are within about 10 miles of the Bethel Area Chamber of Commerce.”  You may purchase artworks, just-picked seasonal produce, frozen beef and pork, dairy products, prepared foods including hot sauce, maple syrup, and prepared meals and desserts. Hosts have planned family-friendly hiking options, a barnyard tour, orchard education, and pick-your-own flowers and pumpkins. And the deliciously prepared food being offered. More on that next week – it’ll make your mouth water.

Are you wondering things like: what special activities and products? how do I know where to go? will there be bathrooms available? Answers to all this and more can be found at: https://go.rotary7780gives.org/maat/Campaign/Faqs
