As part of the Bowdoinham 5th Annual Open Farm Day & Art Trail, you can take part in the 4th Annual Explore Merrymeeting Bay Bike Ride hosted by the Merrymeeting Trail Initiative.

There will be three led bike ride options for a range of abilities and interests: at 10am is an 8 mile family ride, at 11:30am is a 40 mile ride and at noon is a 24 mile ride. All three led rides will leave from Mailly Waterfront Park in Bowdoinham.

The riders can stop in for farm tours at: Campo di fiori, Apple Creek Farm, Gruff Acres Farm, Life Force Farm, Blue Bell Farm Maine, Stonecipher Farm, Fairwinds Farm, Six River Farm, Havenridge Farm, Left Field Farm. East of Eden Flower Farm, and Harvest Tide Organics. So come explore our local farms and see how our food is made!

And because Bowdoinham is a “Very Crafty Town” we’ll have Catmint Garden & Gallery, Swan Island Restoration, Morphee Creations, Watersong Music, Melissa M. Fiori, Debbie Spaulding, Diana Mosher, Starrocks, Steven Thomas Bunn Furnituremaker, Bloom, Jane Page-Conway Fine Art Photography and Merrymeeting Arts Center joining us with an Art Trail. Bowdoinham Historical Society will also have both the Jellerson School and Meeting House open for tours and The Long Branch School of Maine will have Tiny Home tours. Come see why Down East Magazine named Bowdoinham on of the “Best Places to Live in Maine”!  Then from 3 to 6pm the celebration will continue at Mailly Waterfront Park for a Barbecue featuring fresh foods from local farms and live music.
