We spent yesterday cleaning up the barn so we will have plenty of space to celebrate, indoors and outdoors, even if there is a quick rain shower.
We’ll use the hand-crank cider press to squeeze Montgomery Place Orchards apples (thanks Talea!), and then simmer it up into delicious hot cider.
You can try your hand at threshing and winnowing dried beans grown by our crew manager Jordan, using a 100-year-old wooden fan mill!
Pumpkins are waiting to be carved, the rotten-tomato-toss is set up, and horseshoes will be played.
We are cooking up some farm-fresh snacks, and feel free to bring along something of your own to share if you like. We’ll have ale from Keegan brewery.
And at 5pm we’ll enjoy the music of Pocatello!
Bring your friends and family! All are welcome. You can share the facebook event page at https://www.facebook.com/events/157761694362032/
