AppleFest
September 10, 2022
10:00 am - 3:00 pm

AppleFest is a festival celebrating the historic Turner Farm and its turn-of-the-century apple orchard.  The event offers a taste of an old-fashioned fair with activities designed for all ages.   Music on the porch starts at 10:00 and goes all day. The apple pie contest judging takes place early in the day so the pies can be sliced and sold.  Lunch is also available.  Costumed volunteers share the history of the farm and the homesteaders who built it. Try your hand at activities from churning butter to sawing wood.  Children can choose to make a craft and play old-fashioned games, plus pony rides add to the excitement.
