Attend the Common Ground Country Fair

Written by: Aimsel Ponti
Common Ground Country Fair

The Common Ground Country Fair  is the place you can watch blacksmithing, oxen, spinning,  goat milking and several other types of demonstrations. You can also attend workshops on invasive plants, archery, stoneworking, tree identification and well…you get the idea.  This is the Maine Organic Farmers and Gardeners Association’s big weekend, so expect to find delicious local food, live music,  handmade everything and lots and lots of animals.
