Fall Harvest at @WRHS_History's Hale Farm Village (psst... don't miss it!)

The Annual Hale & Farm and Village Harvest Festival is going on this weekend but we went last weekend under the threat of stormy skies.  Lucky for us we did not let the weather sway us because it was a gorgeous day in the country exploring what it was like before electricity.

As we walked through the village we got to see how apple cider was pressed (too many bees to actually try it), watched apple butter being made, pick apples and shuck corn.  The kids ran freely through the open spaces, jumped into leaves, explored a maize maze and even tried their hands at farming (sort of).  There was also pumpkin painting and a hay ride for more traditional Halloween fun.  Of course, our hay ride was us under an umbrella but it was still fun!

If you haven't made plans for this weekend, or even if you have, this should be on the must do list.  The fall colors are brilliant, even on an over cast day.

$10 adults; $5 children and WRHS Members are free
