Come cast your vote for your favorite farm animal and help us to celebrate another successful harvest  season on Heckscher Farm! Meet some of the candidates up close, plant an herb garden for the winter, see  how farmers process wool in the off-season and more. We’ll keep activities outside as much as possible.  Join us on the meadow for tastings of Arethusa ice cream from 2:30-3 (while supplies last). We reserve  the right to limit group size for any of the program offerings. Heavy rain will cancel.
