Aunt Eunice here. I feel as frisky as a young goat thanks to this lovely cool weather with which we’ve been blessed. It makes me think of fall and that’s alright, though I’m not quite ready to let go of summer. We have three and a half weeks before summer officially ends and I plan on enjoying every day of them. This past weekend the Pocono State Craft Festival was held here on the farm and it was a lovely event. Lots of folks came to visit, check out the fine art and crafts that were for sale, and have a look at the farm museum. Next on the calendar is our Covered Bridge Farm to Table Dinner for which tickets are all sold out. Good food, lovely setting and good company.
Summer tours season ends on Monday September 2nd (Labor Day) so you can still get a visit to the farm in. We are open for Fall tours, which technically take place during the summer according to the calendar, on Saturdays September 7 and 14 from 10am to 4pm. That’s your last chance for the regular historic tour in 2019.
The biggest adventure of our year is on the horizon. Our 45th Harvest Festival will take place on Saturday and Sunday October 12th and 13th. This year’s theme is “Farms – Center of the Community”. There are far too many demonstrations and activities to list, but you can read more about it under the Calendar of Events section. I always pray we can have smooth sailing for Festival as it is our largest fundraiser of the year. Good weather, large crowds, plenty of volunteers are all needed to bring about success. When September arrives it will be full speed ahead on preparations for this event. I hope you will consider coming out to support us and our Harvest Festival. You are sure to have a marvelous time so come and enjoy yourselves!
That’s all for now. Have fun during these last few weeks of summer. Take care.
