Thank you to all who made our Fall Festival a Success!
To everyone who attended this past Saturday's Fall Festival, we thank you. The day was a complete success, even with the occasional rain shower mixed in. We had approximately 2,500 people come out for the event. The trebuchet throwing pumpkins was enjoyed by all who watched. We would also like to thank our sponsors, for whom this event wouldn't have been possible. On behalf of the 4-H Education Center at Auerfarm, thank you. We hope you enjoyed the day and to see you at next year's Fall Festival.
From The Blog
For more than three decades, young people have discovered a special relationship with the earth through visiting the 4-H Education Center at Auerfarm.
There is inspiration everywhere: walking the woodlands and fields, investigating trees, plants, and flowers, or discovering the natural habitats of birds and animals. Students leave here with new curiosity and a love of inquiry-based learning.
Community Supported Agriculture (CSA)
"I think the only thing that is important to say is what sets my CSA apart; it is a "Whole Diet CSA" meaning members can select fruits/veggies, meat, dairy, grains and coffee.”
- Kelly Baker, owner of Highland Art Farm
Bright Yellow Farm
"Farmer Caitlin Henzler owns Bright Yellow Farm and grows on rented land at the 4H Education Center at Auerfarm. She grows a diverse variety of organically grown vegetables for a 30 member CSA. A CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) is a farm share program where members come weekly throughout the summer to pick up a bag of fresh vegetables.
She also sells her produce at the Simsbury Farmers Market and the Bloomfield Farmers Market throughout the summer.
