Citizens for Easton’s 14th annual Farm Tour held Saturday celebrated the town’s most valued asset: its farms and farmers.

“It’s a celebration of Easton’s farming heritage,” said Ellie Susmeyer, a CFE board member. “It’s to educate and let people know that farming is alive and well in Fairfield County, particularly in Easton.”

Many volunteers and local organizations, including the Easton Garden Club, Easton Community Center and state-certified major composers, contributed to the successful event for people of all ages.

The day’s featured activities included educational opportunities and tours of Easton’s working farms. A newcomer and one of the highlights of the tour was Palmieri Farm, located at 195 North Park Avenue, which sells eggs and flowers to the public.

“The farm store is open during the day for the public, but the whole farm as a whole is not,” said Joe Palmieri, the farm’s owner.

Stamford resident Sam Valenti’s favorite part of the tour was seeing the little baby goats run around.

“They were so cute and feeding them was fun for sure,” said Valenti.
