Family Fun @ the Farm

Date: Tuesday, August 24
Time: 10:30 am - 12:00 pm (EDT)

Looking for a fun activity between camp and school? Want to get in the spirit of Rosh Hashanah (it’s early this year!)? We’re here for you!

Alstede Farms
1 Alstede Farms Lane, Chester

Cost: $36 per family

Join other Federation families in our private party tent at Alstede Farms for a morning of holiday fun. After PJ Library story time, we’ll take a wagon ride to the orchard to pick apples – perfect to dip in honey at your holiday table!

Includes all the above plus 4 apples per person, pre-packaged kosher snacks and water, a High Holiday goody bag, and all-day access to many of Alstede Farms complimentary activities after the event. (You can purchase additional wristbands for paid activities in our tent.)  

Due to the limited spaces for this event, registration is open to Greater MetroWest residents only.

Best for children 3 and older.  

Space is limited, so sign up today!

  • Story time begins at 10:40 a.m. Wagon ride to the apple orchard leaves promptly at 11 a.m. and will return to the tent by noon. Please plan accordingly as the wagon cannot wait for latecomers and will not return to the tent early.  
  • Enter at the Alstede Farm main entrance and continue around the back to park. Parking is not reserved.  
  • Attendees must wear close-toed shoes, appropriate clothing for being in the orchard and in the elements, and sunscreen! 
  • Strollers are not allowed on the wagon ride or in the apple orchard but are permitted in the Federation tent.
