On August 28th and 29th, from 10am -4pm (rain or shine!) the 2nd Natural Heritage and Agriculture Fair will take place at Warren Farm, a fulltime working farm in Barrington NH.
Start the day off with a mule team hay wagon ride along the trails of the protected farm land. The Barrington Recreation Department will be hosting family friendly “old-time” games morning and afternoon on both days. Local farmers who raise animals will show off their critters and answer questions.
Learn about turtles, frogs, snakes, dragon flies, birds and more during nature walks on the 244 acre farm with Scott Young at 1pm Sat and Sun.
Dr. John Carroll, famed advocate and author of local agriculture will speak at 12 noon Saturday. Beekeeper Amy Antonucci will give a talk about her work with bees on Sunday.
Purchase local food at the large farmers’ market, begin your gift shopping early with local artisans, eat maple sugar ice cream and cotton candy made by Sugarmomma, purchase sweet goodies and bread from 45 Market street Bakery, lunch and breakfast foods by Fig Tree Cafe, and fresh fish sandwiches by Seaport Fish and more.
Many educational booths will inspire and propel you towards community sustainability. Sunday Peter Yarenski and friends will play fiddle music and jam with area musicians, and there will be live music from local musicians on Saturday too.
