Bolton – Locally grown, raised, and produced items for gifting – or keeping – will be available at the Spring Agriculture Sale Sunday, April 29, from noon to 3 p.m., at Slater's, 356 Great Rd., Bolton. The sale is sponsored by the Bolton Agricultural Commission.
Farmers and other agricultural businesses will offer Bolton-based products and gifts for sale, appropriate for wearing, planting, and/or giving. Shoppers can find one-of-a-kind handmade sweaters and ponchos; yarn and raw fleece; wool felted scarves, sachets and mini animals; local eggs (chicken and quail); and daylilies and other plants, as well as Mother's Day and birthday gift certificates.
Bring the children to see rabbits and hear about 4-H opportunities from Bolton's 4-H Bunny Club, and pet a mini horse, courtesy of a local equestrian. Watch a local spinner demonstrate the techniques that turn wool into yarn. Stay to enjoy the music of Sarah Benoit, contemporary folk singer/songwriter and instrumentalist.
A map showing the location of Bolton's farms and agriculture businesses will be available for shoppers looking for everything from apples to local meat (pork, beef, lamb) during the upcoming harvest season.
Additional vendor space may be available. There is no vendor cost for space, but the seller must be Bolton-based, have a link to agriculture, and must register in advance. Interested parties should contact Barbara Parente at 978-779-6303 or [email protected] as soon as possible.
