Apple Day 2010 at the Historic Stewart Farmby
Apple Day in Surrey won’t be in honor of iPads, iPods, and iMacs; rather, the one-day festival will celebrate the fall harvest September 25th at the Historic Stewart Farm.
Apple Day will include samples, cider press demonstrations, orchard tours, honey tastings, and more. Suggested admission (as it is by donation) is $5 for adults, $3.75 for students, $2.50 for children and students, and kids 5 and under are free.
The Historic Stewart Farm is right along Crescent Road in Surrey (on your way to Crescent Beach from the highway). It dates back to 1890 and features a furnished farmhouse, pole barn with agricultural tools and machinery, boathouse, threshing shed, root cellar, and heritage gardens and orchard. Staff and volunteers in Victorian costume provide tours of the house & grounds.
If you haven’t taken the family to the Stewart Farm, I’d say Apple Day would be a great time to check it out.
