Another glorious September is upon us and here at Linnaea Farm we're all getting ready for the 6th Annual Harvest Festival!
We warmly invite you to join us on Saturday, September 14th from 1-6pm down on the farm for an afternoon of fun, music, zucchini games and of course the blue ribbon contest. The categories this year are:
1. Best Pickle (bean, cucumber, carrots etc)
2. Best chutney and jam
3. Best pie -flavor and look
4. The most unusual vegetable/fruit
5. The largest and most impressive vegetable or fruit
6. Cornucopia or most beautiful harvest basket - present the abundance of the season in your own way!

All registrations need to be on the tables by 2:00 - judging starts at 3:00!
The farm has been hosting the Harvest Festival to bring the island to this beautiful land that nourishes so many of us and also as a fundraiser to support the work we do on the farm! Memberships for the Linnaea Farm Society will be available on site as well this year. There will be some 50/50 draws - so bring your toonies and loonies and join in the fun!

We ask that you leave your dogs at home, park on the road and walk down to the lakeside pasture. There will be signs guiding you down if you haven't been on the farm before! Come hungry and ready to celebrate the harvest season with all of the lovely island folks and with all of us here on Linnaea Farm
Music starts 1:00 pm, games shortly after!
See you down on the field!

PS:If you'd like to come to the Festival on Saturday but the walk down from the parking lot to the Lakeside Pasture is to much for you, let us give you a ride
Liz will be in the Linnaea Farm Parking Lot 1:30 ready to pick people up. Call her if you have any questions!
