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 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, MA
ACKERMANN MAPLE FARM
Ian and Caitlin both grew up in Cabot, Vermont. In early 2013, they 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
JENNIFER'S HANDMADE SOAP
Jennifer's Handmade Soap makes vegetable-based soaps, using only natural oils from coconut, palm, castor seed, and avocado. These natural oils softly clean and moisturize your skin, leaving it feeling silky smooth and completely pampered. Concord, MA
Fran Weber is a folk singer/songwriter, actress, and drama teacher from Acton. This September, she is opening Paper Moon Workshop, a music and theatre program for kids in West Acton.
