Farm Day is a fantastic, well attended event that celebrates agriculture and community in Stafford. Thousands gather to enjoy and see animal and farm exhibits, a farmers' market, crafters, community and civic groups, local businesses, food vendors, tractor display, music, activities for kids and a wagon ride to 3 area farms. Farm day is hosted by the Stafford Agricultural Commission and all proceeds are used to promote and support agriculture in Stafford.
Farm Day builds momentum each year and we encourage new vendors and groups to join us as well as those from previous years. Applications will be accepted in the order they are received. Once an application is received vendors will be contacted with the option of paying by credit card, check or cash. Once payment is received the exhibitor will be listed on the staffordag.com website under Farm Day. A short description will be added so that prospective exhibitors can decide if they want to come based on the mix of exhibitors.
Application deadline is 7.31.23.
