Carrot Fest at Everdale on Sept. 25

Organizers are offering some old-fashioned farm fun at Carrot Fest, Everdale’s fifth annual fall harvest celebration.

With so many activities planned, visitors are likely to find something for everyone, especially carrots. Visitors will enjoy live music, a local marketplace of food and artisans, a silent auction, harvest games, workshops, tours and more.

Parents and youngsters alike can visit farm animals, bake bread, make butter, and harvest veggies from Everdale’s farm fields.

Those with a passion for cooking and baking can enter the culinary carrot contest, and show off their skills with a favourite carrot dish.

Entries will be accepted until 1:30pm and the winner will be announced at the event.

Meanwhile, The Funky Mamas will be on the stage sharing upbeat music with an energetic stage performance.

“Carrot Fest is Everdale’s largest event of the year, and continues to grow” said event and workshop coordinator Jennifer Lennie. “This year we are thrilled to have received sponsorships from Bernardin, Edible Toronto, The Big Carrot, Eco Parent Magazine and others to make the festival all the more fun.”

Just around the corner from Hillsburgh, Everdale is a 50-acre organic farm and environmental learning centre. Set amongst rolling pastures and lush forests, it is a place for people to experience life on a farm, take in the countryside, and enjoy the rich culture and community that we share.

Carrot Fest is on Sept. 25 from 11am to 5pm. Admission is $5 for adults and kids are free.

Everdale is at emergency number 5812 on the 6th Line.

For more information, or to find out how to be involved, visit, call 519-855-4859 extension 101.
