PULLMAN, Wash. — Everyone is welcome to come celebrate fall harvest at WSU’s Organic Farm annual Harvest Party, Oct. 8 from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. The event is free and open to the public.
Harvest Party activities include hay wagon rides around the farm, corn maze, face painting, and fresh pressed apple cider. There will be a U-pick pumpkin patch with traditional jack-o-lanterns, baby pumpkins, and a few novelty varieties. Pumpkins will be sold by weight.
“The star of the party will be a giant pumpkin on display,” said organic farm manager Brad Jaeckel. “Party-goers are invited to take a guess at the pumpkin’s weight. The closest guess wins the giant or a more reasonable sized jack-o-lantern of the winner’s choice. The party is always a lot of fun, so we invite folks to come out to meet the farm crew and to enjoy the harvest and the crisp fall air.”
The WSU Organic Farm is located inside Tukey Horticulture Orchard on the corner of Airport Road and Terre View – follow the signs to the farm. The orchard will also be open for U-pick and pre-picked fruit sales.
