2014-harvest-party-at-WSU-80PULLMAN, Wash. – The Eggert Family Organic Farm will host Washington State University’s annual harvest celebration for the first time, 10 a.m.-4 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 3.

The farm is on Animal Science Road, off Terre View Drive, directly behind the Grizzly Bear Center. Please leave pets at home.

“We’re excited to show off our new location,” said farm manager Brad Jaeckel. “The harvest party provides a great opportunity to meet the organic farm crew, see your friends and enjoy the harvest and the crisp fall air.”

Family fun will include face painting and games for kids. Fresh pressed cider and food will be available for purchase with cash or check.

Pumpkins will be sold by weight from a u-pick pumpkin patch that includes traditional jack-o-lanterns, baby pumpkins and novelty varieties.

The harvest event was previously held at WSU’s Tukey Orchard organic farm.
