Third annual Farm and Fish Fair in Wiscasset April 9
The Morris Farm in Wiscasset, a working farm and education center that promotes sustainable agriculture and stewardship, is hosting its third annual Farm and Fish Fair on Sunday, April 9 from 1 to 4 p.m. The fair is open to the public and free to attend. Local producers from around the region will showcase their products, market their Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) or Fishery (CSF) programs, and talk at length about the importance of local agriculture and aquaculture. Snacks, beverages and live music with Portland-based acoustic band Rough Sawn will be available.
Purchasing CSA and CSF shares helps local producers harvest the freshest, highest quality products for their subscribers and community by helping with a season's initial investments and giving producers an ease of mind. There are several types of shares, including standard weekly or monthly box shares, credit-style shares, virtual food hubs, mix and match shares, and more. Most CSAs start in June; but many are year-round and shares can be picked up at farmer’s markets, farm stands, a work office, stores, or elsewhere.
Local producers such as Wandering Root Farm, Tarbox Farm, Albee Farming, Barred Owl Creamery, Copper Tail Farm, Sheepscot General Farm and more will be in attendance. Some producers will have products for sampling and purchasing. If you have an agriculture/aquaculture business and would like to be a part of this fair or have questions about the fair, contact Marvin Tala at VISTA@morrisfarm.org.
