About this event:
If you’ve ever been to the Fair, you know — and if you haven’t been, anyone who has will tell you — it’s an event like no other, that brings together so many people from so many walks of life, all in the spirit of celebrating the rural and agricultural traditions of Maine. Learn about everything from composting to folk art. Talk with organic farmers from all around Maine, test agricultural products like farm-made soaps, compost, and fiber arts, and compete in activities like the foot race, fleece show, or manure toss (!). See displays on energy and shelter, country kitchen demos, and crafts and creatures from Maine fiber farms, and take home a haul of fresh, locally harvested organic produce.
