Harvest on Henry 2016 Bake Sale and Pie Contest

The Bake Sale
Bring your family’s best dessert to Harvest on Henry this year and participate in our Bake Sale! This fundraiser is our favorite and most delicious part of Harvest on Henry. We'll sell your homemade treat — pies, cakes, brownies and cookies are all accepted — at the festival alongside the students' homemade ice cream.
It's free to register, but please RSVP in advance!
The Pie Contest
Do you know your pie is the best, and want everyone else to know it, too? Our panel of local celebrity judges will select a winner in two categories: Fruit (apple, cherry, etc.) and Other (pecan, custard, chocolate, etc.).
For one pie, the entrance fee is $5. To enter both categories, or two varieties in one category, the fee is $8. Saul students may enter for FREE! Payment is required on or before the day of the event. Credit card payments are accepted here. Cash or checks (made out to Weavers Way Farms) can be dropped off at the farm Tuesdays and Fridays between 2 and 6 p.m., in an envelope marked “Pie Contest,” or you can pay when you drop off your pies on Oct. 15.
The Pie Contest is open to all. Please register here. Saul students compete for free and can register here.
Awards will be presented at 3 p.m. Prizes include gift certificates to local businesses and goodie baskets. In addition, the best student pie will win a grand prize.
