TODAY'S ADDITIONAL VENDORS

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


BUZZ AND
THRIVE GARDENS

Our garden center carries everything — annuals, perennials, trees, shrubs, veggie plants, houseplants, succulents, cacti, tropical plants, and garden accessories. We focus primarily on the unique and hard-to-find plants that give our customers greater variety and more options. The most important aspect of our enterprise is the quality of our plants. We work very hard through the winter, spring, and summer to make sure our customers get the healthiest plants possible. It makes all the difference. Leominster, MA
 

COOKIE LADY TREATS
Baked especially for you
We specialize in high-quality, unique flavors of cookies like blueberries and cream and coffee chip. We also make homemade marshmallows, graham crackers, cheesecake, breads, gift baskets for all occasions, and much more! Maynard, MA


LITTLE BEEHIVE FARM
Tony Lulek started beekeeping in 2004, calling the enterprise Little Beehive Farm. The farm packs a lot on just under an acre of land in suburban Boston: a huge vegetable garden, a large array of woody shrubs, trees, and perennials, an ever-changing number of chickens, and our hives. Our products include: honey, handmade soaps, hand creams, body lotion, honey candy, candles, and lip balms. Holliston, MA

PONY SHACK CIDER
We are a family-owned cidery nestled in the heart of apple country. Our mission is to produce small batch, artisanal cider from locally sourced ingredients. We dream big and believe life is too short to drink a bad glass of cider. Boxborough, MA

FRIENDS OF THE
ACTON LIBRARIES

The Friends of the Acton Libraries is a volunteer organization dedicated to the support of Acton's town and school libraries.
