A visit to The Farmer’s Pantry in Clarksburg, one of the biggest working orchards in the region, is the perfect way to spend some time with your family, get some fresh Autumn air and pick some apples. Tell your t’ween to leave the iphone, ipod or iwhatever in the car and introduce them to upick. Enjoy a real apple farm experience by picking your own apples right off the tree!
You can't get any fresher than that! Choose the size of your container and fill it up with any varieties that you like to bring home with you. The GNE is here! This weekend from September 25th – 27th. The Great Northern Exhibition has been a showplace for all things agricultural for over 150 years. Originally a way for rural people to show their produce with pride, and compete in many agricultural and homemaking areas, over the decades, it has become a great source of information and entertainment, providing a venue for rural and townsfolk alike to meet, compete, and share the latest in ideas, news and see the latest merchandise. As information became more readily available through the media, the focus of today’s GNE shifted to entertainment and education. Today, the GNE is the prime country fair in the southern Georgian area, and thousands of visitors attend the 3-day event. Situated between Collingwood, Wasaga Beach and Stayner, the GNE features local home crafts, produce, livestock and entertainment. Join us for the horse-pull, the horse show, the demolition derby, the youth talent show, and dozens of other features. See you at the Fair!! Admission at the gate.
