Welcome to the Red Fire Farm Events Calendar. We have several large public events on the farm during the spring, summer, and fall. This page features our main farm events, but you can stay up to date with our seasonal tastings, workshops, and tours on our Facebook farm events page.
Every May, we hold a celebration of the season at both of our permanent farm stand locations in Montague and Granby. A full schedule of guided tours, workshops, and tastings of local products kicks off the busy summer season.
In 2015, the Voiland family celebrated 25 years of farming at Old Depot Gardens in Montague and 15 years at the Granby farm. We’ll toast to that!
When the farm stands open for the season in May, we offer a wide selection of organic bedding plants including vegetables, herbs, and flowers. Year-round, the farm stands offer local products including dressings, salsas, honey, cheeses, milk, yogurt, beverages, and much more.
Our Strawberry Soiree in June is a family-friendly day at the farm with the strawberry fields open for public picking. After you’ve been out in the fields, relax in the shade with lawn games, live music, and a slice of homemade strawberry shortcake and cream. Don’t miss the strawberry tasting of over 10 different kinds, and put in a vote for your favorite varietal!
In the evening, join us for a Feast in the Fields to benefit the Mount Grace Land Trust, a wonderful local organization working to preserve affordable farmland. Prepared by a professional chef using seasonal ingredients from Red Fire Farm and other local suppliers, this five course meal is not to be missed!
Our biggest event of the year, the annual Tomato Festival in August is a grand celebration of the peak harvest season. Held at our Granby farm, the Festival features local artisans and vendors, fresh food, live music, kids’ activities, pick-your-own in the fields, hay rides, and a tomato tasting of over 100 varieties!
Pre-order bushels of apples and we’ll have them waiting for you at the Granby farm with the hand-crank presses all ready to go. Sample seasonal produce, drink hot cider and eat donuts, and find fall produce for all of your cooking and decorating needs.
(Note from Naman: for some reason, this text needs to be included to make sure the calendar page is full width. You can have the intro text say anything you want, but it has to be long enough to wrap on one line. If this is a big issue, I could try to troubleshoot the theme files, but the simpler method is just to include a bit of an intro.)
