Granby Open Farm Day on September 9 offers a glimpse behind the scenes at about a dozen farms in Granby, Connecticut: See the fields where your food grows and the facilities where milk turns into cheese. Watch a horse-training clinic and a sheep shearing demonstration. Take a wagon ride, taste a new wine or the first apples of the season, try out spinning some wool, or take your photo on a tractor.
Experience the variety of agriculture in Granby, with stops that showcase veggie farms, horse farms, orchards, a landscape nursery, and a vineyard, plus a cattle farm and a dairy.
Catch exhibits, demonstrations, tastings, and tours of areas of the farms not usually open to the public. Special events are scheduled all day; there is truly something for everyone.
Open Farm Day T-shirts will be available for sale at the Granby 4-H booth at Maple View Farm. Come support local agriculture and the Granby 4-H.
