I am so sorry the festival is not happening this year. We are up at our Greenville cabin til December, and we would have enjoyed going. First, congratulations on your little girl. 💝. Second, the gift is amazing! Third, the recipes, as always, are great ideas to add to our table. And fourth, I will pass this on!! Thank you for all your hard work and have a very Happy Thanksgiving!!! Best to you all, Sue-Ellen Baron

Oh MY GOODNESS. That basket looks wonderful. Ripley veggies are so delicious, hearty, and good FOR you. I enlisted a friend in the Winter CSA this year. She can't believe how yummy and fresh everything is. I am grateful for all you do to keep our communities fed. Happy Thanksgiving.

I am so disappointed this isn’t happening this year. I understand but I am so going to miss that. We look forward to the harvest fest and the Maine cheese festival every year. Stay safe and the the veggies look amazing.
