19th Century Apple & Cheese Harvest Festival

AWARD WINNER! “Top Ten Fall Events” —Vermont Chamber of Commerce

Come celebrate Johnny Appleseed’s birthday! Bring the whole family to a harvest festival at the Justin Morrill State Historic Site. Listen to live toe-tapping fiddle and accordion music with Gale & Gundlach. Meet farm animals—the kind that Justin Morrill would have had on his small 19th-century farm. Make your own cider in an antique press, taste heirloom apples, fine artisan Vermont Cheeses, and homemade apple pie. Play period games, and hike the lookout trail. Also includes gardens, exhibits, an icehouse, ice pond, and a historic home decorated with gingerbread designs. The event runs from 1:00 to 4:00 p.m.

$5 for adults, children under 15 free. No pre-registration is necessary.

For more information, email director@morrillhomestead.org or call (802) 765-4288.

Sponsored by the Friends of the Morrill Homestead and Strafford Village Farm, and is underwritten by Norwich University.
