More about Franklin County's littlee!

The Franklin County Chamber of Commerce and the Greenfield Business Association have combined three local annual events, the Franklin County Home Show, the Green Fair, and Farm to Fiber, (a venue for local fiber farms and artists involved with natural, domestic fiber) into one spectacular Franklin County expo. Another new addition this year is a Local Brewers Sampling Tent; come enjoy a taste of each of the beer, hard cider and mead that is made locally in Franklin County. (There will be a fee charged and I.D.'s will be required at the entrance to this tent only.) Other new additions include the Sunday Waffle Breakfast and ten workshops on home and gardens that celebrate Earth Day.

This expo will showcase how we live and how we make our living in Franklin County. Exhibitors will be included in categories such as home improvement, leisure activities, and new environmental products, and there will be home; yard and garden; and fiber workshops on everything from 2013 Solar Energy Options to raising chickens in your backyard.<>
