The 4th annual Jamaica Plain Agricultural Fair was held on the grounds of the Loring Greenough House Sunday.

For the past four years, Bill Perkins of Agricultural Hall, 245 Amory St. at the Brewery complex, has hosted an old-fashioned New England agricultural fair in Jamaica Plain. The last three have been held on the grounds of the Loring-Greenough House – itself originally the hub of an 80-acre farm – and were co-sponsored by the Jamaica Plain Tuesday Club.

The Jamaica Plain News wandered over on a beautiful crisp fall Sunday morning to see what the harvest was like.
