Farm Fest Fun is Ahead!
Posted on Thursday, September 17, 2015

Farm Fest is this weekend!  School is in, the leaves are just starting to turn, and the time is just right to het together with friend and family on the farm! 

This is one of my most favorite events of the year.  My family and I plan out our weekend, mapping out the farms to visit while fitting in the “extras” such as the library and the breakfast at Vischer Ferry Fire Station #1.  New this year, we will be making a stop at the end of the farm festivities at the Jonesville Fire Station #1 for a delicious Giffy’s bbq dinner Sunday afternoon.

Please check out our flyer on our website with all the details.  Farm Fest is held in September, during harvest season, for residents and visitors to explore and tour our local farms.  Farms open their doors and offer special activities including pumpkin carving, hayrides, folk dancers, folk music, demonstrations and access to farm animals.  This is one of our most popular events in town, bringing in thousands of visitors every year.

The Town of Clifton Park encourages families to “buy local.”  Clifton Park farmers sell their produce at farmers markets and stands as well produce and meats directly at their farm.  Buying locally helps to preserve our farming heritage by keeping our farms viable and giving back to our community.

I hope to see you on the farm this weekend!
