Open Farm Day 

Farmers across Maine opened their doors to the public Sunday as part of the annual &quot:Open Farm Day&quot: celebration.

It’s a way for local farmers to showcase their products, and to teach folks how crucial farming is to the Maine economy.

At Peaked Mountain Farm in Dedham, owners Daniel and Gail Van Wart welcomed visitors to sample their organic, wild Maine blueberries and Maine-made cheeses.

They say they wanted to stress the importance of buying local food.
