Autumn Harvest Weekend at Old Sturbridge Village
Celebrate the harvest and the beautiful New England autumn. Learn how food makes its way from the farm to the dining room table. Join our costumed interpreters as they harvest apples, potatoes, carrots, and beets, and discuss food preparation, thresh and winnow grain, and shell corn and beans. We will also be putting the gardens to the bed for the winter.
You can also visit with the farm animals, take a horse-drawn wagon ride, see our progress on building a new Cabinetmaking Shop, visit with artisan craftspeople, and more!

We want to see what you’ve been growing in your garden this year! Whether you are near or far, help us celebrate the fall harvest by entering this year’s Virtual Home Gardeners’ Exhibit. Learn more and enter here.
