Fun for the whole family! Come and enjoy the many farming delights that Easton has to offer and learn where your food comes from. Enjoy pony rides, hayrides, petting zoo, food tastings, greenhouse tours, and picking veggies and fruit fresh from the farm. Swing on back to the green for some food and old time fun and games and a visit with Easton organizations passionate about farming, community, and farmland preservation.

Come on back to the green throughout the day to enjoy food and entertainment on the green. Skinny Pines – an Easton-based purveyor of wood-fired pizzas – will be on site with their mobile wood-fired oven selling pizza and the Easton Community Center will engage you in some old time fun and games for families.
This is truly a community event in celebration of farming in Easton – past, present, and future. So, come and meet us at the green, have lunch, listen to music and visit our farms.
