LITTLE FALLS, Wisconsin – The public is invited to celebrate the fall harvest at Hungry Turtle Farm & Learning Center. A Festival of Farms will take place on October 7, from 1-4 p.m., at Hungry Turtle’s newly renovated barn and farmhouse outside the village of Little Falls, Wisconsin, near the Apple River.
The Hungry Turtle team created this free event with the purpose of building community around the enjoyment of good food. This year's event, as the very first Festival of Farms, serves to introduce Hungry Turtle to the surrounding community, with food sampling, CSA information, and tours of the farm at 2:00 and 3:00 p.m. Other local producers and artists featured at this event include Apple Hill Studio, with work by fiber artist Keldi Merton; Bluebird Hill Homestead, a nature school; Moo Oink Cluck, a natural meat producer; and Brett Laidlaw, author of Trout Caviar. Musician Mark Stillman will be playing the accordion from 1:00 to 3:00 p.m. Also in the plans are lawn games, a kids' corner, and cider pressing. We'll see you at the farm!
