Family Harvest Festival

Spencer-Peirce Farm celebrates the harvest with music, vintage baseball and family fun

Enjoy a day of traditional music, baseball, and farm activities featuring New Orleans brass band, bluegrass, rock, funk, jazz, and beyond.! Watch Vintage Base Ball played by 1861 rules. See tractors and other farm equipment spanning the last eighty years. Try your hand at corn husking and win prizes at the pie-eating contest.

Learn how simple machines help farmers pump water, press cider, and prepare food. Enjoy a wagon ride through brightly colored autumn fields, build scarecrows, go on a pumpkin treasure hunt, and make fall crafts. Tour the 1690 stone and brick manor house. Cider, donuts, and hot lunch are available for purchase.

Funds raised at this event got to the Newburyport Education Foundation.
