Terhune Festival Weekends to Begin Sept. 15-16

Editor's Note: The following is a news release issued by Terhune Orchards.

Celebrate the fall harvest season with your family at ’ popular, activity-packed fall festivals that run every weekend from Sept. 15 through Oct. 28, plus Columbus Day, Monday, Oct. 8.

Pick you own fresh apples, pumpkins and gourds, take a tractor-drawn wagon ride, enjoy live music, visit our “Everything about Pumpkins” adventure barn, walk the farm trail and enjoy farm fresh snacks and homemade country food.

Fall festival weekends at the farm offer plenty of special activities for kids, including face painting, pumpkin painting, pony rides, and our popular cornstalk maze.

Make sure to bring an appetite. At Pam’s down-home food tent we will be roasting a pig for pork sandwiches, and you will also find barbecued chicken, hot dogs, homemade salads and soup for sale. Satisfy your cravings for dishes made with apples! We will have apple pies, apple muffins, apple bread, cider doughnuts and applesauce, and you can quench your thirst with cold or hot cups of our own Terhune apple cider.

Adults 21 and over can stop in at our vineyard and winery tasting room in our 150-year-old barn and sample our award-winning red and white wines, plus our popular apple wine.

Our farm store is filled with the bounty of our harvest from our 200-acre farm, including: lettuces, pepper, potatoes, beets, carrots, and tomatoes, which are among the more than 35 crops we grow each In our bakery we make homemade cookies, apple crisps, fruit breads, brownies and other goodies using Pam's family recipes.
