Benner’s Farm Harvest Festival

Despite the rain Sunday afternoon, hundreds showed up for Benner’s Farm’s annual Harvest Festival Oct. 19 and 20 in East Setauket.

Attendees celebrated the season with pumpkin picking, hayrides, live music, craft and food vendors and more.

Bob Benner, the farm’s owner, demonstrated how to use an apple press and discussed the steps in making apple cider as well as how people centuries ago stored fruits and other perishables in root cellars.

The trails on the grounds were also decorated with tombstones and scary characters that attendees could enjoy on foot or during a hayride.

Benner’s Farm in East Setauket celebrated its annual Harvest Festival on Oct. 20 and 21 with pumpkin picking, apple cider demonstrations, a haunted hayride, music, vendors and visits with the farm animals. The two-day event attracted over 1500 visitors.
