Enjoy the outdoors at Hilltop Hanover Farm!
What are you doing on Saturday? Instead of watching a college football game or letting your children play on the Internet all afternoon – go outside! Grab a sweater, and you will be fine! Come on over to the Hilltop Hanover Farm in Yorktown Heights and celebrate "Pumpkin Day" on Saturday, Oct. 20 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Saturday, Oct. 20 will give you a great opportunity to enjoy your local gem on Hanover St. Guided tours of Hilltop Hanover Farm will be available from 11 to 2. During the tour you will be able to see the progress of the new chicken house. (If you are interested in helping to finish the chicken house renovation, tell your guide.) Families are encouraged to bring their own picnic or pick up lunch in town. There are acres of land to enjoy so there is plenty of room to spread out!
You can also choose a pumpkin for carving (nominal fee) or visit the farm stand to pick some great ingredients for a fall soup. Stay and hike the trails or follow the quest trail. The opportunities are endless, and the views are spectacular!
If interested, you could also order your “Thanksgiving Vegetables Box.” For $45, HHF will provide a box with freshest Thanksgiving vegetables. These side dishes will serve four adults.
