Attractions include live entertainment, a marketplace with 200-plus vendors, the Hasbro Kid’s Zone, food trucks, art gallery exhibitions and a beer, wine and spirits garden.

Blackbird Farm Treats Cows and Pigs Like Family Before They Feed Yours

The Smithfield family farm humanely raises antibiotic-free, pasture-fed, 100 percent Black Angus cattle and American Heritage Berkshire pigs.

“Can you imagine, there would have been thirteen houses on this piece of property?” Ann Marie says, pointing at a field that’s as lush as Vermont’s green mountains. Instead of another housing development, her cows graze there peacefully.
