This year’s Harvest on Henry is the biggest yet, with fun guaranteed for the whole family — hop a hayride and tour the Henry Got Crops CSA farm, get up close and personal with lambs, goats and cows, build a scarecrow or paint a pumpkin to take home! We’ll have lots of games and activities —Vegetable Car Racing, Pumpkin Golf, Pumpkin Bowling and Pumpkin Ring Toss, to name just a few.

There’s plenty to do, learn and eat! In fact, there will be stuff to do until the cows come home!
