Farmers' Museum to host Harvest Festival


The entire family will be able to enjoy free carousel rides, sponsored by Matt Sohns and family. Organizers said an abundance of delicious foods from the season’s harvest awaits festival-goers, such as roasted corn, sausage sandwiches, and homemade soup. Children will have the chance to have fun with food during apple bobbing. 

A special attraction this year is the chance to learn about wild plant identification, foraging, and cooking on Sunday afternoon from author Dina Falconi and illustrator Wendy Hollender. They will offer a tasting of a recipe from their new book, demonstrate botanical drawing and sign copies of “Foraging and Feasting: A Field Guide and Wild Food Cookbook.”
