Celebrating Agriculture

The History of Celebrating Agriculture in Woodstock CT

The concept of Celebrating Agriculture started in 2001 as part of an effort to promote community education and participation in agriculture, as well as to support consumer purchasing of local farm products. official statement from Jodi Rell

Each year, our goal is to welcome more people to learn who our farm neighbors are, and how to support local agriculture to enrich and maintain the open space -- the working landscape -- of our area.

The Quinebaug-Shetucket Heritage Corridor, which extends from Northeastern Connecticut into South CentralMassachusetts, is considered The Last Green Valley between Washington D.C. and Boston, because of the significant amount of open space in the region, much of which is agricultural land. This farmland provides the area with a sustainable food supply and products necessary for basic, everyday needs. Farms contribute to open space, wildlife, and the economic viability of the region.
