the fall festival
The markers of the new season are all here: cooler nights, increased starch cravings, and a gigantic harvest of the farm's Winter squash on Tuesday. The farm has another tradition to mark the waning days of the season while celebrating the abundance of the fields. On Saturday, October 1st, we are holding our Fall Festival. Farm members, their family, and friends are invited to a homegrown party with games, food, music, and community.
Here's what we have planned so far (we are always excited to have inspired people contribute their own ideas to the evening):
Kids Games begin between 4:30 and 5 We've had everything from bobbing for apples to Ruth's incredible field maze.
Potluck begins at 5:30 or 6, whenever our stomachs get to rumblin! Please bring a dish to pass and plates/silverware for you and your guests. Our potlucks are ALWAYS epic. Paul & Anne will supply the earth oven pizzas. If you'd like to sign up for a dish, please see the white board in the distribution area. (But you're welcome to just surprise us!)
Dessert Competition Each year, people submit their sweet treats to be judged (and enjoyed) in a number of categories. A super fun event not to be missed! (And, don't worry, everyone gets to dine on them eventually)
Bonfire If the night allows, we can cozy up by the fire.
Talent Show Anyone who has come to the festival over the last couple of years knows that this is a pretty special (and low-key) event! Each participant gets 5 -10 minutes to share with the group. Sing a song, tell a joke, read a poem, lead a dance, whatever inspires you. Sign up in the distribution area or the night of!
We hope you'll be part of this very special evening!
Autumn love from the farm.
