“With Festival at the Farm, our goal is to give music fans of all ages the chance to escape the everyday, to enjoy a weekend of live music, and experiences focused on simple pleasures and good times,” said James Macdonald, founder of Six Chair Productions. “It’s going to be another amazing weekend at Prowse Farm and we can’t wait to see everyone there.”
Festival at the Farm is a weekend-long celebration, with live music and a focus on great food and unique experiences for all ages. In addition to the music, Festival at the Farm will host locally-sourced and inspired food vendors, culinary workshops and demos from local chefs including Chef Postal, an onsite farmers market featuring local farmers and non-profits connected with the farm-to-table and organic food movements, backyard games and a craft vendor marketplace.
Inspired by Pete and Gerry’s free range hens, who have ample room to roam on green pasture, the Free Range Kids Zone will feature kid’s entertainers, hands-on games, magic shows, storytelling with Big Joe the Storyteller, animal shows, a pop-up bookstore and much more.
Six Chair Productions is a Boston-based entertainment company founded in 2016 by music business veteran James Macdonald that specializes in festival development, artist management and musically-minded brand experiences. It was Macdonald’s previous experience managing the much-loved Life is Good Festival at Prowse Farm that brought him back to the location to develop Festival at the Farm.
Pete and Gerry’s Organic Eggs is a fourth generation family farm in the foothills of the White Mountains in Monroe, N.H. Today, all of Pete and Gerry’s Certified Humane Free Range Organic eggs come from other small family farmers in New England who follow the strictest standards of humane animal treatment, safety, and environmental sustainability. Pete and Gerry’s believes hens deserve a safe, comfortable place to live a happy, healthy life – and that our family farmers deserve the right to keep their lands and livelihoods without having to resort to unhealthy factory-farm practices.
“As a local company, we jumped at the chance to be a part of The Festival at the Farm,” said Jesse Laflamme, Chief Executive Farmer of Pete and Gerry’s Organic Eggs. “This event aligns so well with who we are as a company – family-led, a focus on local, organic and humane food provided by real family farms – and we look forward to sharing our eggs with everyone at the festival.”
Festival at the Farm takes place at historic Prowse Farm in Canton, a 44-acre property managed by the Friends of Prowse Farm, a non-profit volunteer organization. The property is located at the gateway of the Blue Hills Reservation, public parkland that has been set aside for recreational use. Free parking is available on the Prowse Farm grounds.
