About the Festival

Festival Mission:

Our festival mission is to:

Our Definition of Local Food:

We define local as Massachusetts grown and produced as the first preference, and then expanding beyond the state to Connecticut, Maine, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, and Vermont in New England.

Participating Vendor Requirements:

All dishes/portions must be made from locally grown or sourced perishable foods such as:

Massachusetts grown or sourced is the first preference and then expanding beyond to the New England region CT, ME, NH, RI and VT (no specific order).  If any ingredients are not produced in MA or New England, SBN Requests that vendors select the next most local option (PA, NY, Quebec etc.) and/or the most sustainable option available- organic, fair trade etc.  

Vendors should clearly label what farms/suppliers and their locations are being used in their dishes at the event to inform customers (Ex.  Braised beef from Lyndell Farm, Pepperell, MA served with sautéed collards from Red Fire Farm, Granby, MA).

In addition, all vendors are required to conform to SBN’s Zero-Waste festival rules:

If you need help sourcing recyclable or compostable service ware please contact SBN at: Maddie@sbnmass.org or call us at 617-395-0250

Eden Pond Farm, Bernardston, MA

Our laying hens and Freedom Ranger heritage meat chickens are raised the way you would want them to be--free of hormones and antibiotics, and free to forage for bugs and whatever else they might find in our (non-certified) organic pastures. The result: eggs with lovely deep yellow yolks, and slow-growing meat birds that have a deep, delicious flavor. Our birds are available fresh from July through October, or frozen all year.

Foxbard Farm, Shelburne, MA

Offer: Grass-fed beef

Our objective is to produce high-quality, all natural, grass-fed Black Angus beef. During the summer, our animals range freely in our own pastures feeding on local grasses like timothy, red clover, orchard, and canary grasses.  Late in the fall they move to our winter pasture where they receive hay and grass silage cut from our meadows.

Hardwick Beef, Hardwick, MA

Offer: Grass-fed beef

At Hardwick Beef, we provide the very best beef from animals that are raised on grass, without any antibiotics or added hormones. There is an increasing demand for safe and healthy food, and a demand for an ability to track a cow from birth onward. With mad cow disease an ever-growing concern, consumers want to know if their food is safe.

We are promoting a return to grass farming. As animals are moved from one fresh paddock to another, grass is continually being grazed when the vitamins, minerals, and proteins are at their best. Consequently, cattle get the best possible nutrition, manure is spread evenly across the land, and the farmland actually improves with use.

Year-round availability through Boston area distributor Prima Provisions: Phone: (617) 464-4130

Offer: Grass-fed, pasture raised beef

At River Rock Farm, we raise our own beef cattle and sell USDA inspected, natural, aged beef to retail customers and restaurants. We raise livestock in ways that promote their health and well-being, as well as that of our customers. Our cattle are raised in pastures, rather than in feedlots. Feeding animals in pastures, with trees for shade and protection from the elements, room to roam so that the cattle can spread out, short grass for keeping the livestock cool in the summer, and fresh water, virtually eliminates disease problems in the herd. We do not use artificial growth hormones, growth stimulants, or artificial or antibiotic feed additives.

Offer: Organic Sea salts using natural solar evaporation and wind

At Maine Sea Salt Company, we believe that the cool, mineral-rich saline waters of the Gulf of Maine provide our natural sea salts with a unique flavor. As the first salt works in Maine in over 200 years, our company brings forward the tradition of harvesting pure and natural sea salt, directly from the source... the ocean! We make our sea salt naturally, through the evaporation and reduction of seawater in solar green houses and shallow pools.
