INFO FROM THE AGRICULTURAL HALL:::::
The Agricultural Hall is Boston's urban grange; a store, a resource center, and a hangout for urban aggie-types (agri-nerds?) to share their agriculture-related experiences, explore new ideas, and just "shoot the breeze."
From the store at 245 Amory Street we sell a wide range of urban agriculture supplies, primarily beekeeping equipment and chicken husbandry supplies, but also solid, practical, and inspiring goods and tools. Our tendencies are:
- To carry organic, recycled, readily recyclable, handmade, and/or locally made products;
- To sell in bulk when possible, thereby helping you keep your costs and packaging footprint to a minimum;
- To only carry well-made, durable products that you will cherish and use for a lifetime; and
- To be a resource/referral center for anyone looking for answers to agriculture-related questions.
