Pumpkins, apple butter, and fresh cider — it’s harvest season! Celebrate the 102nd anniversary of Farmer’s Fair at Dill’s Tavern and Plantation from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday, October 21st, during a day of demonstrations and festivities including activities for children and living history encampments, as well as live music by the North Mountain Ramblers. Take part in traditional craft demonstrations such as hearth cooking (with food samples!), blacksmithing, woodworking, and broom making. Help make apple butter from cider pressed at Agriculture Day earlier in the season. Local beekeeper Greg Hildebrand will be demonstrating the benefits of having an apiary for land management. Freshly made potato chips and sandwiches will be on sale, along with honey, cider, and cigars made with Dill’s Tavern tobacco. Tickets for the annual quilt raffle will be available for $2 each or three for $5.
