Hundred’s Turn Out for Cultivate: Belfast Area Farm and Art Tour
What a perfect weekend for the Belfast Creative Coalition’s new project Cultivate: Belfast Area Farm and Art Tour! The tour took place over Columbus Day Weekend, Oct. 12 & 13 and the fall trees were beautiful, the weather enchanting. Hundreds of people came out and wound their way around the county, visiting farms, watching demonstrations of harvesting, crafting and creating. Guest lists at the sites included visitors from Philadelphia, Boston, Charleston, and as far away as California. Downtown Belfast offered special openings at Third Eye Gallery. Arts and craft demonstrations were offered all weekend at Lupine Cottage. Some favorite moments include watching children collecting peacock feathers at Appleton Creamery, buying fresh organic canned goods and eggs, at amazing prices, at Ewald Farm & Table, plus being given a tour of the yurt at Pagette’s Farm, then topping off the weekend watching Alan Curry’s blacksmithing demonstration.
