Many farms across Massachusetts are opening their fields and barns to tourists, a trend known as agri-tourism, offering individuals and families a great way to see, smell, and taste the agricultural offerings of our state.

On May 15, celebrate spring with Natick Community Organic Farm (NCOF) for their Spring Spectacular event. This is an old-fashioned fair the whole family will enjoy. The day’s activities include live music, hayrides, nature-based crafts, petting pasture, three-legged races & other old-fashioned games, educational talks, hands-on demonstrations for children, and gardening workshops throughout the day. Enjoy farm fresh food like quiche featuring the farm’s own spinach and asparagus; sausage pancakes featuring NCOF syrup; NCOF turkey salad; NCOF-grown greens in pita pockets, grilled cheese with Cabot's cheddar, and NCOF maple syrup and walnut sundaes over Crescent Ridge vanilla ice cream!

Good food and fun from 10- 3, rain or shine. Ride, walk or take the T and receive $1 off admission.

Additional cullinary agri-tourism destinations.
