River Festival celebrated at Cider Hill Farm
WALDOBORO — Medomak Valley Land Trust’s sixth annual River Festival — a celebration of the watershed — was held this year at Cider Hill Farm.
The Sept. 1 festival drew hundreds to the farm to listen to music; chat with friends; eat lobster, pizza and burritos; chuckle at cucumbers in the vegetable contest; build and race small boats; touch critters of the tidal pool; and learn from farmers, artisans and conservation groups from throughout the Medomak River watershed. There were boat rides down the Medomak River, and a 5K road race.
Cider Hill Farm is a historic 25-acre farm located in the fields behind the intersection of Main Street and Medomak Terrace in Waldoboro village.
Medomak Valley Land Trust has been working for 20 years to promote and preserve the natural, recreational, and scenic character and the traditional land uses of the Medomak River watershed.
