MORRISTOWN — Come one, come all! On Sunday, September 17, from 12:00 noon to 5:00 p.m., join the hundreds of visitors that come each year to the spectacular 1920s Country Fair & Harvest Festival at Fosterfields Living Historical Farm in Morris Township.
Spend a fun fun-filled day on the farm with endless activities for the whole family. Meet the friendly farm animals, take a wagon ride, learn the Charleston, and play old fashioned games. There will be a variety of delicious food for purchase.
Take part in fun, interactive activities all afternoon. Lend a hand churning butter and pressing apples into cider. Watch a blacksmith perform his craft, and see a side-saddle demo. Stop by the Visitors Center, and view an array of handmade crafts, fresh vegetables, and stunning floral displays.
