MASSARO COMMUNITY FARM CELEBRATES THIRD SEASON
WITH FAMILY FUN DAY
Woodbridge, CT – Massaro Community Farm will celebrate the successful conclusion of its third growing season with a fantastic lineup of activities at its annual Family Fun Day, October 13 from 1-5pm. Rain date is October 14.
This year’s event will eclipse years past with an impressive array of interactive exhibits, games and music. In addition to the usual pumpkin painting, scarecrow building and hayrides, a variety of food and music will be on tap. Sweets and treats from Wheeler’s Market Café, Green Well Organic Tea & Coffee, Nicky’s Toffee, Vegan Bobbi and Quinn gourmet popcorn will be available. Music will be supplied by Beecher Road School, dance caller Bill Fischer and members of the Wry Bred band, along with The Fiddleheads and Chris Keevil and family.
Special features include instructional workshops, the Peabody Museum’s On the Road exhibit and Rainforest Reptile Shows. A Condiment Contest invites farm members and epicurians to enter their favorite salsa, relish or sauce for prizes. The Connecticut Beekeeper’s Association, the Woodbridge Garden Club and the Woodbridge Land Trust will be represented, along with the Rotary Club, who will be conducting its annual coat and clothing drive.
The farm celebrates a series of successes in 2012: receipt of organic certification, the installation of a solar array on the restored dairy barn, the expansion of cultivation and offerings through its CSA (community supported agriculture), a summer camp program in August, and an impressive farm-to-table dinner in September that doubled attendance over last year.
This event would not be possible without the support of our members, volunteers and the following: Burpee Seed Co., Chabaso Bakery, The Early Family, Peoples Bank and Subway.
Massaro Community Farm is a non-profit farm on a 57-acre parcel of land in Woodbridge, Connecticut, 10 minutes northwest of New Haven. Our mission is to keep farming, feed people, and build community. Our vision is to enhance the quality of life for generations to come.
