Common Ground Country Fair

  Every fall the Maine Organic Farmers and Gardeners Association holds it fair.  It started in Litchfield in 1977 and has been held in Unity ever since.  It's not a fair in the usual sense, there are no rides but there is a lot to see and do.
  Families come by the hundreds to see, smell and taste the goods that are offered.  There is plenty to eat prepared on the spot and a lot of exhibits and animals to see and discover.  It is a celebration of the Back-to-the-Land movement that Maine has experienced.  There are more family farms in Maine now than there have been in ages, many of the farms supply organic foods to the eastern part of the Country.
