Harvest Fest is quickly approaching this Saturday and the team is hard at work getting the farm ready! Harvest Fest is a FREE event being held in the Harvest Green model home park this Saturday November 11th from 11am to 3pm. In addition to all of the amazing vendors and activities, you will be able to purchase produce from the veggie wagon, meet our goats and chickens, and take a tour around the farm. Plus, you’ll have the opportunity to meet our Farm Educators Adam, Bonnie, and Ryan.
Our chickens will be demonstrating their new chicken tractor at Harvest Fest. The chicken tractor is a lightweight, easily transportable wooden frame covered in chicken wire. The tractor is placed over grass and four or five chickens at a time are allowed inside to scratch and forage for insects. This allows us to supplement their grain feed and provide them with an opportunity to get some exercise.
If you’re a fan of pumpkins, there will be a pumpkin patch out at Harvest Fest. We will have many beautiful and unique varieties available including Mystic Pie, Blue Hubbard, Crystal Star, Cinderella, Jarrahdale, and Red Warty Thing. Several of these varieties make delicious pies so plan on picking up a couple for your Thanksgiving and Christmas festivities.
