Strawberry Jammin’ with Judi from 11 am to 2 pm
Judi will be hanging out in front of our Farm Market preparing homemade Strawberry Jam and giving you pointers about how to preserve that freshly picked fruit! She’ll have yummy samples available and answers to all of your questions.
We are also introducing a very fun and YUMMY activity- The Donut Game!
We take one of our famous Apple Cider Donuts and tie a ribbon around it. We then tie the other side of the ribbon to a stage-length clothes line. We dangle 8 to 10 donuts in the air. Each contestant that is chosen will come up on stage and kneel under their donut of choice. When we say “GO”, the contestants will then begin to try to be the first person to eat the dangling donut without it falling to the ground. The only rule is, YOU CANNOT USE YOUR HANDS! This game is not only tasty, but very entertaining for onlookers. On top of that, we will be using a specially made batch of STRAWBERRY DONUTS for this event- yes, you read that correctly!

Little Yellow One-Eyed Dude will be landing at 11:30am
