You don't need to leave town to visit a farm this weekend. Come to the Botanic Garden's Heritage Farm for the seventh annual Harvest Festival. Sample the smells, sounds and tastes of the fall harvest!
Find out how apple cider is made and sample fresh cider pressed on-site. Cider and whole apples (Ida Red, Rome, MacIntosh and Fuji) are for sale during the event, so you can enjoy the crisp flavor of autumn at home. All sales benefit the New Mexico BioPark Society.
Volunteers will be stationed throughout Heritage Farm providing demonstrations, games and crafts. Activities will include
* Tractor-drawn wagon rides
* Dummy steer roping
* Colcha embroidery demonstrations
* Pie baking and tasting
* Farrier demonstrations
* Beekeeping demonstrations
A Taste of the Wild Catering will have down-home food available for purchase. The special menu features beer-braised bratwurst, barbeque brisket, garden-fresh vegetables, roasted corn on the cob and more. On Sunday from 11 a.m. – 1 p.m., Muddy River String Band will delight you with old-time, bluegrass and folk music.
