Time: 10:00am to 4:00pm

Description: This event was established several years ago to educate the public about farm animals, vermicomposting, organic gardening, beekeeping, bats, and other aspects of life on the farm. There will be ongoing presentations of the “Life of a Pumpkin” interactive module, Harvest Talk & Tour, a history of the 94 year old farm, along with the opportunity to interact with members of the farming community who are eager to share their experiences.

Representatives from the farm and agriculture community share unique and diverse stories of their “Life on the Farm” experiences. Live entertainment and food, tractor hayrides, picnicking, pony rides, petting zoo, facepainting and farm zoo continue through the weekend.

Don't miss the Antique Tractor Parades at 11:00 & 2:00!
