HIGHLIGHTED SEASONAL VENDOR
Each week we list the vendors who come to market on alternate weeks or on a "per diem" basis. Beginning this week, each eblast will highlight one of our seasonal vendors — many of whom have been part of the ABFM for multiple years — so that you can get to know them better. Information on all our vendors is always available at our website: www.ABFarmersMarket.org/our-vendors First up — long-time veteran Applefield Farm.
Applefield Farm is a 25-acre diversified farm growing with organic methods, using no synthetic fertilizers, pesticides, or herbicides. We specialize in a variety of seasonal vegetables, fruits, and flowers. Our delicious fruits and vegetables and beautiful flowers make us happy, and we enjoy sharing that with our customers. Stow, MA
SUNDAY'S ADDITIONAL VENDORS
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
