A successful book launch on June 24

It was great to see so many friends and neighbors at last Saturday’s book launch and gallery show for A Quabbin Farm Album! Some pics from the event are below.

Books are here!

We’re excited that the first shipment of books has arrived at Haley’s, just in time for ourĀ book launch and celebration of local farms and farmers at Quabbin Harvest this Saturday afternoon (June 24, 2017, 1-4 pm).

You’ll be able to buy books at the event, and they’ll also be for sale at the coop in future, and at other area stores. Or you can buy them online through this site – just click the “Add to cart” button in the sidebar.

A portion of the proceeds from each sale, especially those made at the coop or online through this website, will help to support the work that Quabbin Harvest is doing to strengthen local food production and marketing.

Coming soon!

A Quabbin Farm Album, a new book by Cathy Stanton featuring photographs by Oliver Scott Snure, will be released in June 2017 by Haley’s of Athol. This website is still under construction, but check back soon for more about the book, the farms and farmers, and the story of agriculture in the Quabbin region of Massachusetts.

In the meantime, you can get a sneak preview of some of the materials in the book by visiting the 2015 “Farm Values: Civic Agriculture at the Crossroads” website.

You can also see Oliver’s new portraits of area farmers in the gallery at the Athol Public Library through May 31.

And if you’re in the area, be sure to join us for theĀ book launch and gallery opening celebration at Quabbin Harvest Co-op in Orange on the afternoon of Saturday, June 24!
