SUNDAY'S ADDITIONAL VENDORS
ACKERMANN MAPLE FARM
In early 2013, Ian and Caitlin purchased the 36 acres that would become Ackermann Maple Farm, and constructed their business. The sap that flows from more than 3,000 taps is heated using a wood fire, evaporating the water and drawing out the pronounced natural maple flavor for which Vermont is known. The tapping, sap collection, boiling, filtering, bottling, and shipping are all done by Ian and Caitlin. Cabot, VT

Building a community
connection to food
The Assabet Village Food Co-op is an initiative to build a community-owned grocery store in Maynard that provides access to healthy, affordable food for the Metrowest/ Assabet Valley area.

Become an Owner in the Co-op and support the regional food system. Maynard, MA
OUR ABUTTERS ROCK!
We want to give a shout-out to the folks (individuals and institutions) that are the immediate neighbors of the ABFM. They could not be more accommodating, tolerant, and generous. Please thank them when you see them — the Spero, Friedrichs, and Watt families, the West Acton Citizens' Library, the West Acton Fire Station and staff, the owners of the parking lot (whose south end we spill onto), and the Christian Science Society. And please, respect these folks' residential properties by not walking onto their lawns and driveways. Thank you!

Not just for food and farming nerds! The NOFA (Northeast Organic Farming Association) annual summer conference is a fun and super-educational opportunity to learn more about nearly anything to do with food and farming. August 14–16 at UMass Amherst. Check it out at:
