Fall brings with it a time of change. Kids return to school and as the weather cools the leaves change from green to vibrant colours of red, yellow, orange and brown. For farmers (and all of us eaters of farmer’s food) fall is a chance to celebrate the year’s harvest. The past 4 years we’ve chosen to celebrate this time with a Harvest Festival.

This year it seemed like our Harvest Festival was even bigger and full of even more reasons to celebrate! We were ecstatic about the number of people who came (estimated 250-300) and the amount of support we received from local businesses and politicians. Special thanks to the volunteers who gave their time and talents. The variety and content for the afternoon was packed with talented musicians, delicious food, healthy lifestyle activities, children’s storytelling and much more. The pictures do a much better job of highlighting the event! Enjoy!
