I had never been to Massachusetts before this NOFA conference and I was amazed at the beauty it possesses. Jesus (my fellow garden summer intern) and I drove past a sign for Hadley, Massachusetts, which was founded in 1661--We were not only embarking on new territory, but it was pretty darn historical too. The town of Amherst was so cute and the people are very welcoming and unusually happy! It was a really cool trip, we both learned a lot and had a great time admiring all of the differences (and similarities!) in culture. See below for the complete gallery of the trip to the Northeast Organic Farmers Association Conference :) Simply click on the thumbnail and you can view large versions of all the pictures one by one.
Bon appétit et bonne sante,
