Among the many charms of a rural lifestyle is Harvest Time. This important season marks the rewards of a year of hard work preparing, planting, tending, and more tending. The reward of months of toil. Harvest is celebrated when the region's crops come in. There is feasting drawn form the crops of the season and a sense of relief, relaxation and lots of social gathering to share in the delights of another year's accomplishment.
Join us again this year for another celebration of our harvest! This is a FREE event to attend full of wonderful food vendors, arts and craft vendors, and entertainment! Local orchards are available for picking too!
APPLICATIONS ARE NOW AVAILABLE!
