Northeast Harvest hosted our Annual Farm Tour on Friday August 24, 2018. Massachusetts AG Commissioner John Lebaux and MDAR Rep Rick Leblanc joined the Northeast Harvest team as we toured 3 of our amazing farms in our region. We visited Chris’ Farm Stand in Haverhill, Mann Orchards in Methuen, and Mann Orchards Riverside Farm also in Methuen.
Our tour began at Chris’s Farm stand in Haverhill Massachusetts, the farm stand is located right on their 139 acre Farm. Chris’s Farm stand is a family owned and operated farm. They produce vegetable and raise farm fresh turkey. They support our local farmers and sell other local farms products at their farm stand. Haverhill Representative Andres X. Vargas and Methuen Representative Diana DiZoglio joined us as we went on hay ride touring Chris’s Farm. It was amazing to see the farm and learn about the 200 year progress the farm has made. We ended the tour by viewing their baby flock of turkeys and chickens
Next stop on the tour was Mann orchards in Methuen who is known to have the best fruit pie around. Representative of Methuen, Diana DiZoglio joined us as we toured the farm with AG Commissioner John Lebaux. We got an inside look at how they make their pies as well as toured the orchard where they grow their apples.
The Last stop was Mann Orchards Riverside Farm which is a new Northeast Harvest Farm. This land was purchased last year and was made possible by the APR program. We toured the farm by a tractor ride and saw the newly planted orchard and the corn maize. This Farm offers a lot of Farm Agritourism and for fun fall family activities. It has come along way from last year.
