Neltner’s Farm announces that their 8th annual Fall Festival will grace the hills of Northern Kentucky each weekend in October with a celebration of autumn’s abundance: home-grown handmade food, regionally-produced wines, folk art, covered bridge, petting zoo, a NEW barrel train ride designed by Kevin Neltner and WarnickArt, and a full lineup of regional music acts will play the Sycamore Stage. And pumpkins, of course.
There, just across the river, the locavore movement hasn’t come in fashion. Because it was never out. For more than 100 years and seven generations, the Neltner family has been tilling the soil, coaxing from it a bounty of honest, fresh produce each season.
The Neltner Farm Fall Festival is like a step back in time. Kids can pet goats, sheep, or a miniature donkey, run through a corn maze, take a horse-drawn wagon ride, get their face painted, or just roam free on the land. Grown ups will relish in live bluegrass music, handcrafted wares from regional artisans, and delicious homemade fare. Mama Neltner even cans her own sweet and dill pickles, applesauce, and jams, available for sale at the farm shop. And St Francis Xavier, the church from near by Falmouth, is doing all the home cooking to enjoy on the spot.
Music starts at 1:30.
