Our Picks: Fall Festivities in New England


Appleton Farms in Ipswich, MA hosts several great events throughout the year! Check out some of the fall events they have planned: Meet a dairy farmer, Farm Friday Dinners, wagon rides, concert series, just to name a few.

The Trustees also cares for nearly 25,000 acres – all around Massachusetts. Search here for more of their events throughout the state.

If you are planning to go to The Big E (September 13-29), we hope you stop by the Mallary Complex to see the dairy cows and learn how milk travels from the farm to you. We have a cool exhibit right next to our amazing singing refrigerator!
