The sights and sounds of traditional harvest activities will enliven the pastoral setting of the Sherwood-Jayne Farm on Sunday, September 20th from 11AM-4:30PM, when the 26th Annual Long Island Apple Festival takes place.

The festival is held at the Sherwood-Jayne House, an 18th century farmhouse that retains its original apple orchard, where some of the trees are over 100 years old.

The whole family will enjoy a host of activities including old-fashioned games like apple relay races, tug-o-war, and apple-head doll making. The festival features open-hearth colonial cooking demonstrations, an Apple Pie Baking Contest and pie auction and tours of the historic Sherwood-Jayne House. Take a hike on new nature trail and learn about the farm’s natural habitat with Seatuck Environmental Association. There will also be storytelling, pony rides, traditional music, an old- fashioned hay ride, sheep shearing, face painting and many other events for people of all ages.
(Some of these activities will have an additional charge.)

The festival also features apples of all kinds,apple pie, fresh apple cider, fresh popcorn, hot dogs and candied apples. Colonial craftspeople will be on hand to demonstrate and sell their products,
