Harvest on Henry: Huge Success

The weather was perfect and Henry Ave was lined with cars! Our second annual Harvest on Henry festival  was a huge success.  CSA members, Saul families and neighbors all came together to enjoy the farm. The hay ride was perhaps the most popular event, and the sheep and baby goat stole everyone’s hearts. There was always a line at the food trucks- The Spot, and Birds of Paradise. Pumpkin painting was perhaps the busiest table of all the children’s activities. It was great to see the farm full of so many people, listening to the live music, enjoying good food and good company. Our goal was to raise $2000 for discounted shares and donating food to the Saul cafeteria, in 2013. We exceeded our goal, thanks to literally, the hundreds of people who showed up to support the farm.  The event was possible only through the cooperation of many generous people volunteering their time for many months. I want to especially thank the CSA Fundraising committee, without whom this event would have ever gotten off the ground!
