Whenever we go to Slate Run, I'm always impressed by the authenticity, and how much it feels like a step back into the 1880's. There are a few staff members working there, but the majority of the farm is maintained by volunteers. It's a working farm, and they keep it going all year.
|Mild winter, wooly bear?|
|Pumping water to wash hands|
|Tasting Apples, the Spitzenburg was our favorite, but we also liked the Winter Banana apple|
|It licked me!!|
|The boys push the girl|
|The girl's turn to push|
|Roo, checking us out|
|The apple butter is finished cooking and now must cool|
|Finally got it!|
|The kids chose pie pumpkins, and the big'ins chose squash|
|Our baked squash supper looks like a bundt!|
Next Saturday (Oct 22nd, 2-5pm) at Slate Run Park (right next to the farm), will be Fall Fest. There will be lots of activities for kids, plus music, snacks, farm animals, and a tram ride.
