SUNDAY'S ADDITIONAL VENDORS

BEE FIELDS FARM
Bee Field Farm medicinal garden contains more than 100 different herbs. All the flowers and shrubs planted in our garden have been planted for their medicinal, edible, or pollination uses. We use organic and biodynamic gardening practices to enhance and enrich the fertility of our beautiful garden. Our preparation process is very simple: we harvest, strip, sort, clean, infuse, pour, pack, and label our products by hand. Wilton, NH

COASTAL VINEYARDS
Fine Creative Wines

We grow 12 different grape varieties on our 10-acre vineyard, producing white and red wines, most dry and some sweeter wines. Our varieties include Chardonnay, Pinot Gris, Pinot Noir, Riesling, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Chambourcin, Marquette, and others.  All our wines are made in our farm winery in South Dartmouth. Please visit, tour our vineyard and winery, and (of course) taste our wines; the Tasting Room is open Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays, noon–5pm. Dartmouth, MA

We offer biscuits, bones, training treats, and more. Every SITZENS treat purchase aids our continuing conservation of rare-breed livestock. Pets like local, too! Ashby, MA

Our magical sauces enhance the taste of anything, and can be used as a dipping/finishing sauce, marinade, BBQ sauce/additive, or cooking ingredient.

REASONS TO EAT LOCALLY GROWN

Week #4, from the Central Mass Grown 2016 Farm Products Guide, one of their list of 10 Good Reasons to Eat Locally Grown.

Four:

Local food builds community. When you buy direct from a farmer, you’re engaging in a time-honored connection between eater and grower, and you’re supporting a local business. Getting to know folks who grow your food helps you know more about the place [where] you live. In many cases, it gives you access to a place where you can go to enjoy nature and the seasons, and to learn more about how food grows.


REPRESENT MASS. AG ON YOUR RIDE!

The New Entry Sustainable Farming Project, Mass Farmers Markets, and the Beginning Farmer Network of Massachusetts have launched a specialty license plate to support new farmers, farmers markets, and a vibrant Massachusetts food economy. Support the local food system in Massachusetts by signing up for a Choose Fresh & Local license plate.
