Enjoy the abundance of the New England landscape in this weekend celebration of the autumn harvest!

Discover how flax is transformed into linen, and then try your hand at weaving on a tape loom. Make seasonal crafts for your hearth or front door. Taste local fruits and vegetables and quench your thirst with switchel – a refreshing tonic for farmers of old.
