The festival has all the sights and sounds of traditional harvest activities to enliven the pastoral setting of Sherwood-Jayne Farm. The 18th century farmhouse retains its original apple orchard, where some of the trees are over 100 years old. Visitors can also take a look inside the barn and learn about the various agrarian tools.
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 a 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.
