Corn & Tomato Festival, August 21


Under 20 miles from Boston, Verrill Farm occupies land which has been under production for more than three and a half centuries.

Today, over 150 acres are devoted to crops from asparagus to zucchini and customers are welcome at festivals which celebrate the farm’s bounty and local agriculture.

Mid August is peak season for two fan favorites, corn and tomatoes. The crops are so popular that Verrill Farm has created an annual Corn and Tomato Festival.

This year’s festival will be held on Saturday, August 21 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. The event includes tastings of many varieties of corn and tomatoes, entertainment and activities.

Our Corn and Tomato Festival is a perfect opportunity to visit our farm and taste the flavors of summer’s bounty.

There will be over 30 tomato varieties including heirlooms, hybrids and cherries – all grown at the farm and all available for purchase in the farm stand to take home for slicing, making a sauce, or canning and freezing for use in the months ahead. There will also be corn on the cob to taste and much more, including:
