Fall Harvest Festival at Huntley Gardens

EMMONS, Minn.- Huntley Gardens held a Fall Harvest Festival on Sunday.

Apple cider was made with an old-fashioned press, the type used a century ago. People also were able to take a look at the antique farming equipment such as cream separators and hand corn shellers.

Varlys Huntley said children were able to learn how fruits and vegetables are grown.

“They [children] come out here and they have the opportunity to pick an apple, look at the orchard, said Huntley. “We have a scavenger hunt, where they’ll actually go out into the garden and find different vegetables and bring back a sample, so we want to make it a fun educational day for kids and also a fun day for adults.”

Huntley said all produce sold at the festival from pumpkins, apples, jams and jellies come from their local farm.
