Fall Day on the Farm

Join us  October 15, 9:00am-3:00pm as we celebrate fall harvest at Cross Orchards Historic Site. 

The cider presses will be working hard as we process our Cross Orchards apples into fresh cider available for sale. Explore an array of local vendors from farm stands and artisans to local non profit resources.  Enjoy lunch at one of the local food trucks and spend time wandering museum exhibits including the Swanson exhibit, woodshop, railcars, and historic bunkhouse.  A variety of performances and interactive games will take place throughout the day including train rides and docent led hay rides.
