Calf Unveiling Day

Saturday, May 2 –

Event Time: 10am-3pm

Aldermere Farm,
20 Russell Ave, Rockport

Maine Coast Heritage Trust (MCHT), a state-wide land conservation organization, invites area farmers to participate in Calf Unveiling Day on Saturday, May 4, to promote local agriculture and food. Volunteers are also being sought to assist at the event, which will be held from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at MCHT’s Aldermere Farm, a historic saltwater farm located at 20 Russell Avenue in Rockport. At this open house type of event, the community can visit with the new Belted Galloway calves, the Aldermere Achievers 4-H club, and local farmers. Calf Unveiling Day is by far Aldermere Farm’s largest event with hundreds of visitors passing through the farm that day. Farms with animals, vegetables, fruit, or flower products may set up a table or pen and display their information and goods for sale. Past events featured farms with alpacas, goats, sheep, herbs, vegetables, cider, wine, and blueberries, as well as organizations that offered agricultural programs and camps. Community Supported Agricultural farms are also encouraged to participate. Please contact the Aldermere Farm office at (207) 236-2739 or jalbury@mcht.org for more information and to register. There are no fees for registration or admission. The event is free for the public.
