2nd Annual Avalon Acres Harvest Festival- October 8th, 2012

This is a wonderful time to bring the kids and learn about life on an apple orchard. The orchard will be open for apple picking, our farm store will be open, and there will be many apple and harvest related demonstrations throughout the day. Money raised from this event will go a charitable cause. Last year's proceeds benefitted the St. Albans Grange, Lions Club, Masonic Lodge, and St. Albans Parent Teacher Organization.
