As the old saying goes, Saturday is for tomatoes and Sunday is for melons. Okay, that may be a new saying, but it applies here because The Berry Patch follows up its Saturday tomato tasting with this melonfest of a sampling where you can try a dozen different varieties from noon to three. Do you know what a Canary melon is or how it tastes? How about a Christmas melon or Tuscan melon? There is more to the melon world than cantaloupe (called muskmelons here in the East)! Come learn some of the subtle, and not so subtle differences, in the many types of melons these this Stephentown institution produces and support your local melon (and tomato) grower!
Pease Farm is one of the three oldest farms in Stephentown, making it a fitting site for this exhibition of the skills early farmers practiced to maintain their farms and themselves.

You can also enter a drawing to win prizes from Golden Road Honey and Woolie Glen Baskets.
