On the weekends we will have additional fall festival activities such as; Kids’ Farm Adventures, arts & crafts, hay rides, food trucks, and live music.

Fall Festival & Farm Stand staff will be available to help with a wide range of activities and tasks as needed, including Farm Stand sales, children’s programming, maintaining the property, and more.
