Welcome to the Agricultural Products Area of the Common Ground Country Fair!

Family farms selling agricultural products made on their farms, and suppliers of products for farms and gardens.

This is great area to find farm-madesoaps, herbs and herbal tinctures, seed companies, dried flowers, gourds, maple products, compost, bonsai, fiber arts, apple ladders and more.

The Agricultural Products Area is a lively marketplace celebrating the craftsmanship, ingenuity and artistry of farming entrepreneurs.

Food Items and Ingestible Products: All food items and ingestible products sold or given away as samples at the Common Ground Country Fair must meet the same standards as food sold by the vendors in our Food Area. This includes a thorough review of ingredients and ingredient sources by the Fair office. A copy of the MOFGA Food Policy and Food Ingredient Form are available for download below. If you are interested in selling or offering any food item, you must submit a complete Food Ingredient form with your application. If the food items you are selling are not-certified organic, but are grown and processed according to organic practices, you may submit an affidavit (see below) attesting to your organic practices. Also, anyone selling ingestible products must show proof of liability insurance. Group coverage is available for Common Ground vendors.
