Taste! Organic Connecticut

Wow, what a cool “fair.” Since it is harvest time, and fair season–New England has some good ones, we decided to check one out for ourselves. The 6th Annual Taste! Organic Connecticut was held at Topmost Herb Farm in Coventry, Connecticut, today.

 Organic veggies were in abundance at Taste!

This fair was a bit different. There was no cotton candy, no amusement park rides, no imported crap for sale, and no smoking. What this fair had was scrumptious organic food, folk music, Connecticut made crafts, organic vegetables, herbs, honey, natural cleaning products, informative displays, some wholesome entertainment, and a nice crowd. Also, there was lots of information about clean energy, recycling, composting, and organic gardening. It was our kind of event and was billed as “A Celebration of Connecticut’s Organic Agriculture.”

A little reminder.

Produced each year by Connecticut NOFA, the Connecticut Chapter of the Northeast Organic Farming Association (NOFA), this event attracts a suitably eclectic crowd. If you are unfamiliar with organic products, this would have been a great event to attend. It was educational and fun. Debbie and I are very in tune with the concept of buying local. We have our own little organic garden. We belong to the Putney (Vermont) Co-op, we own a half share at Holcomb Farm CSA in Granby, Connecticut, we compost; yet we still can’t get enough information about this way of life.

 Tall people entertained us.

At Taste!, we were surrounded by a group of people with similar ideals, and that is a comforting feeling. It is great to see the outreach and to see people unfamiliar with the organic/local way enjoying themselves and learning more.

A little music to set the mood.
