2018 Homegrown Farm Fête
Over the past 8 years of the Farm Tour, we’ve met so many great small growers and producers in the county that we couldn’t fit them all on the tour. Last year, we gathered them together under one BIG tent and called it the Homegrown Farm Fête. It was such a success that we’re doing it again! This year, the Farm Fête will gather vendors at the Potosi Town Square, across from the Farmers’ Market. The Fête be open Saturday, August 25th from 10 AM til 4 PM.Stop by to see antique farm equipment on display, a haystack for the kids to jump in and farm animals to pet (gently). Local folks will be selling their produce, homegrown beef, honey, homemade jellies, jams, soaps, baskets, hand spun wool, grilled sausages, hot kettle corn and more. So, during your tour of the Farmer’s Market, growers and farms, don’t forget the 2nd Annual Farm Fête!
