Graze the North Shore Food Festival

August 20, 2016

Join us for our first local food festival! On Saturday, August 20th, Appleton Farms will host Graze the North Shore, a food festival with local farmers, chefs, brewers, vintners and food enthusiasts for a day of summertime feasting. As one of the oldest continually operating farms in the country, Appleton is proud to be a part of a sustainable community of food growers and artisans on the North Shore of Massachusetts. This event will help raise awareness of the locavore movement and celebrate the bounty of delicious food being grown, raised, and served in this corner of the state.

Graze your way through this one-of-a-kind summer event featuring generous tastings of local food, beer and wine, a pig roast, farm tours, cheese sampling, and live music by the Jason Spooner Band. Attendees will experience a true farmer to chef experience among the rolling pastures and historic barns here at Appleton Farms.

Tickets include generous samples and must be purchased in advance. Full size beverages will be for sale from vendors. This event is 21+. IDs will be checked at the gate as well as by breweries and vintners. Rain or shine
