Lots of excitement surrounded this year’s Easton Farm Tour. Over 500 participants signed in at the information booth to tour Easton’s Farms and Farm stands. Thank you to everyone who came! We were happy for the opportunity to show you what our town offers in the way of local agriculture and true community spirit! We don’t think any other town in Fairfield County offers as much as Easton does in the way of farms and farm stands.
And a big thank you goes out to the Easton Volunteer Fire Company who graciously lends us the use of their Firehouse Green each year and to all who worked to make the event such a success! Without our dedicated volunteers this event could never have happened.
Most of all, thank you to the farmers in Easton who continue to till the land and bring forth healthful bounties of locally produced agricultural products and services. We consider ourselves truly blessed to live in a town where it is possible to drive, bike, or walk down the road and purchase natural fibers for spinning or weaving, healthy food, locally grown fruits and vegetables, that come straight from a neighbor’s field to our tables within hours of picking, and other agricultural resources.
Thank you all, and remember: Easton *is* a Farmer’s Market – you don’t have to wait for the Farm Tour to visit our farms and get fresh goods straight from the earth! Come anytime! Our farms and farmers will be waiting for you, and won’t disappoint you!
