Pumpkin Festival at Chris' Farm Stand
There's a lot to do at the annual Pumpkin Festival—get lost in a corn maze, pick your own pumpkins, see a farm animal display, paint your face, visit a small haunted house, trundle across the farm on a hayride, play autumn-themed games. And along the way, built into the harvest-time fun, are kid-friendly lessons in sustainable agriculture and growing food locally. That's because the fest is sponsored by Chris' Farm Stand, a family-run business that makes its home at Silsby Farm. The stand, which sells its goods at local farmers markets, grew out of owner Chris Stasinos' passion for cultivating corn when he was nine. Now a sustainable farmer, Stasinos treats customers to crisp vegetables, sweet corn, and plump pumpkins that are products of his eco-friendly farming practices.
