Harvest Festival

Saturday October 15, 11 a.m. – 4 p.m.
(Rain Date: Sun. Oct. 16, 11 a.m. – 3 a.m.)
We are so excited about the return of this fantastic family event! Join us for an exciting afternoon on the farm amidst the beautiful fall foliage. There will be historical demonstrations: blacksmithing, rope making, and broom making. There will be livestock encounters: wagon rides with a team of majestic draft horses, sheep shearing, visits with our cows and calves, and lessons about our fascinating honey bees. Try your hand at harvest crafts: create grapevine wreaths, decorate pumpkins, roll beeswax candles- and so much more!
Science and Nature Fun: gaze through solar-filtered telescopes, learn how our weather station operates, and visit our encampment.
