Concord Farms: Resilience, Revolutionaries, and Renegades
Tuesday, September 7
6:30 p.m. – 8:00 p.m.
7:00 p.m. Panel Discussion
In-Person Program

Concord farmers, from those who abandoned their plows to fire the first shots against the British Regulars to those still farming in Concord today, live a life that is not for the faint of heart.  Join us for a panel discussion on both the history of agriculture in Concord and the future of today’s working farms and the challenges they face.

Before the panel discussion, visit the Lisa H. Foote History Learning Center to see select objects from the Museum’s collection related to farming in Concord and visit the new exhibition Thomas Dugan: Yeoman of Concord.
