WISCASSET, Maine — The Morris Farm Harvest Festival will be held 10 a.m.-2 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 22, which is National Make a Difference Day. Harvest Festival visitors will plant some garlic bulbs as part of a larger Knox-Lincoln County effort to Make A Difference. Other Harvest Festival activities include cider pressing, bobbing for apples, feed sack races, apple pie contest, the Morris Farm 4-H Club’s first bake sale fundraiser and face-painting.
The free, family friendly event will be held rain or shine. Visitors will visit and pet the calves, goats and rabbits in the barn, churn butter, do raw milk taste tests, tour the Morris Farm gardens or hike out to the yurt and enjoy the fall foliage. Bring your pie to the Harvest Festival by noon to enter the Apple Pie Contest. The winner will get a free one-year family membership to the Morris Farm.
