A day of celebrating locally grown and family farms. Experience “Farm, Fresh, FUN!”
The farms of Lakeshore Harvest Country will introduce fictional characters young Farmer Jane and young Farmer John during Family Farm Fest. The young farmers will learn about the importance of Plants & Pollen during their journey to these local family farms. Kids will receive a FREE prize at each of Lakeshore Harvest Country farm sites. (Thanks to the generous support of Harris Seed Co.)
U-pick & We-pick opportunities, wagon rides, games with prizes, craft projects, seasonal fresh fruits and vegetables, homespun hospitality, wine tasting, farm animals and farm activities for kids of all ages. Lakeshore Harvest Country farms are located along the Lake Michigan shoreline between Saugatuck and South Haven.
Special Family Farm Fest activities are scheduled from 10:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m. at the following Harvest Country farm locations:
- Riverbend Farm
- Stephenson’s Farms
- Dee’s Lakeshore Farm.
- Overhiser Orchards
- Fernwood Farm
- McIntosh Apple Orchards and Winery
- Dutch Farm Market
- Fenn Valley Vineyards & Winery
Kids may pick up a game “passport” from any Lakeshore Harvest Country member farm and get a farm relevant prize while traveling from farm to farm. People of all ages submitting photos taken that day will have the opportunity to win a $25 gift certificate good at Lakeshore Harvest Country farm markets if their photograph is selected as a winner.
After enjoying a fun filled family day on the farms, wouldn’t it be great to make a weekend of it, and enjoy a stay at conveniently located Sun ‘n Sand Resort?
