Every year, ShackletonThomas, a handmade furniture and pottery company located in Bridgewater, invites people to come and make their very own table from sugar maple harvested from the Marsh-Billings-Rockefeller National Park. On Sunday afternoon, heralded by piper Tim Cummings, a lunch for 120 people is held in the middle covered bridge in the center of Woodstock village. Seated around the tables they made the previous day, the participants are served a savory lunch, created entirely from locally grown produce by the famous Woodstock Farmers’ Market.
