Sunflower Festival at Barton Orchards
September 3 @ 11:00 am - 6:00 pm
Barton Orchards is hosting its fifth-annual Sunflower Festival Aug. 25-27 and Sept. 1-4 featuring all sorts of family-friendly fun on the farm! Sit back and enjoy a scenic hayride to a five-acre field filled with 11 different varieties of sunflowers. Cut your own sunflowers (bring your own shears if you have them) and enjoy live music. Sip locally produced wine and beer served next to the field and browse the wares of a variety of craft vendors. The farm market features an assortment of signature jarred products and local items. The Tap Room will be open with 20 local beers and hard ciders on tap, as well as wine and spirits. The kids will love the fun park — with its giant new slide — as well as the petting zoo and the wooden ship playground. The Slip n’ Slide will also be open, weather permitting, so bring a towel! Dogs are welcome on a leash, or off the leash in the dog park. Click here to purchase tickets. Can’t make it to the orchard? Be sure to stop by the Apple Core year-round farmstand in Poughkeepsie for all your Barton Orchards favorites, like apple cider donuts, maple syrup and all sorts of sweet treats, as well as fresh produce, eggs, meat, dairy and unique jarred products. Special orders are always welcome. Call the farmstand at (845) 471-2879.
