About Celebrating Ag in Woodstock CT

Celebrating Agriculture is a fun, FREE educational day showcasing the benefits agriculture provides to the region, as well as the challenges farms face today. It is held in September every year at the Woodstock Fairgrounds on Route 169, Woodstock, CT. See Directions

farmlandsThe concept of Celebrating Agriculture started in 2001 as part of an effort to promote community education and participation in agriculture, as well as to support consumer purchasing of local farm products. Each year, our goal is to welcome more people to learn who our farm neighbors are, and how to support local agriculture to enrich and maintain the open space -- the working landscape -- of our area.

We also invite growers and producers to sell their products and demonstrate processes, as well as local organizations. Woodstock Connecticut, as the host of this event, exemplifies a town working with its agricultural industry to maintain agriculture as an integral part of both its economic and environmental future.

We hope that community members will learn more about forestry, farming, recreational agriculture, and all the other important faces of agriculture, and enjoy a nice day of good food and fun for all ages. We also encourage educators to invite their students so they can learn more about this essential part of our lives.
