2016 - 4th Annual Harvest Festival

Sunday, October 16 from 12 noon to 3 p.m.

Harvest is a time for celebration.  Our most anticipated family event of the year is back — The 4th Annual Harvest Festival is set for Sunday, October 16th, from 12:00 - 3:00pm.

Join us for an afternoon of fun on the farm.  There will be a giant, inflatable corn maze, pony rides, baby animals, hay rides, face painting, live music and more: 

  • New this year is a farm-themed obstacle course, where participants young and old can race over hay bales, under ropes, and around corn stalks and pumpkins!  
  • Norwell Farms educators will be on hand demonstrating apple cider making, bee keeping and Grateful Gardens of Hanover will demonstrate creating a sheet mulch garden.
  • Local musician Jim Armstrong is back again, along with some of his students who will be performing live music all afternoon.  

Admission to the Harvest Festival is $20 per family and includes all activities.  Food and beverages will be available for purchase, as well as gifts and items made by local artisans.  All proceeds from the event benefit Norwell Farms Nonprofit mission.
