Full harvest for fall’s bounty

DOVER PLAINS — Celebrating the fall season with a full-blown, four-weekend fete, Soukup Farms in Dover Plains invited both residents and visitors to the area to drop by the farm throughout October for this year’s 7th Annual Harvest Festival.

Held in celebration of the fall, the farm had plenty of seasonal festivities to keep festival-goers of all ages entertained during their visit, from corn mazes to hay rides to farm-to-table lunches to tractor tours to a hay dragon display to a visit from the Two-By-Two Traveling Zoo.

Commenting on the great attendance at this year’s Harvest Festival, Jennifer Soukup said this year’s festival had a bigger corn maze and a bigger pumpkin patch that brought more people out to the farm.

“The pumpkin crop was good this year, so people were happy,” she said. “Each year, we see an increase in the number of families spending a full day at the farm, just enjoying the outdoors, and luckily this year we had beautiful weekend weather as well.”
