Camden Maine Event Calendar Upcoming Events
The Calf unveiling at Aldermere Farm is one of my favorite events in town!
The 15th Annual Aldermere Farm Calf Unveiling Day (CUD), an open house type of community event, will be held this year on Saturday May 9th, from 10am to 3pm. Aldermere Farm not only holds this event to show off the baby Beltie calves born this past spring, but also works to highlight other local farms and agricultural programs in the area to help keep farming and local foods in the forefront of people’s minds. The public is invited to this free one-day event.
CUD is held right at the main farm barn at Aldermere Farm located at 20 Russell Ave. in Rockport. The event is very family-friendly with numerous agricultural related activities, tours, and presentations that show off the cattle, farming methods, and agricultural products. So far, the farms and agricultural education programs participating that day are Sunnyside Farm with baby goats, Meadowcroft Farm with yarn, meat, pate, and ram lambs, Terra Optima with sausage, ME Water Buffalo Co. with meat and a water buffalo calf, Hatchet Cove Farm with greens and maybe chicks and a calf, Perennial Favorites with plants and vegetable seedlings, Blueberry Farm Alpacas, Dulse and Rugosa with all-natural bath items, Barbers’ Bunnies, spinner Penelope Olson, Tanglewood 4-H Camp with materials about their agricultural and summer programs, and the Aldermere Achievers 4-H club with their show calves. Hot food and snacks will also be available for purchase from the Aldermere Achievers 4-H Club, the Uproot Pie Company, Terra Optima, and the Off Shore Bakery.
Some other important highlights of the day will be the Agricultural Poster Contest posters from students in the third through twelfth grades in the Five Town Schools in which they show their support for local foods. Also, the farm is celebrating 60 years of Belties at Aldermere Farm. The first Belted Galloways to Aldermere were brought to the farm in 1953!
For more information on this event, please call 236-2739. The Calf Unveiling Day event takes place at 20 Russell Ave. in Rockport. Visit www.aldermere.org to find out about more programs and events at Maine Coast Heritage Trust’s Aldermere Farm and the Erickson Fields Preserve.
Characteristically Caribbean, the Cuban table features tropical fruits, root vegetables, fish and small game prepared with influences from Spanish, African, Chinese and French cuisine. The culinary traditions of Cuba are a delight to be savored, so let your palate travel to the Caribbean with us! The class includes wine, hors d’oeuvres, and a specially crafted tasting menu created by Chef Lani Stiles and the team at Megunticook Market, as well as sensory evaluations and aroma identifications. As always, seats for this pairing are limited so early reservations are recommended.
