AppleFest (Maybe September 11th, 2021? Check back.)

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.  The event starts with a flag ceremony, then musicians take the front porch of the 1910 farmhouse and provide acoustic and traditional entertainment.  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.  Craftsman demonstrates blacksmithing, woodworking, or leathercraft, and stations are set up across the property to allow visitors to try their hand at activities from churning butter to sawing wood.  Children can choose to make several crafts and play old fashioned games, plus pony rides add to the excitement.
