The Whallonsburg Grange will host its last Harvest Party of the fall on Saturday, October 3, from 9:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. The cost is $5.00 per person/family.
Apples will be a special focus of this event. Domaine Champlain Orchards in Westport has partnered with the Grange to supply apples. Picked apples are $30 per crate, or pick your own for $15 per crate. Those who are members of the orchard’s apple club receive a reduced rate. To arrange to pick up apples, please call 962-2091.
Community members are invited to bring all kinds of produce to can and freeze at the Grange kitchen, using the processing tools available there. Participants should plan to bring their own jars and lids, or purchase them at the event. Kitchen committee members will be available to provide instructions and support. All ages and experience welcome. A children’s play area will be available. Bring recipe ideas to share!
To learn more about the Harvest Party or about renting the kitchen, contact office manager Stephanie Beneng at email@example.com or 518-963-4170. Reservations for time slots are recommended but not required.
