Those wishing to experience a slice of farming had to do no more this autumn than to attend the fourth annual Sullivan Farm Fall Festival.

The event was hosted Oct. 15 by the New Milford Youth Agency in conjunction with the second annual Housatonic Valley Harvest Expo at venerable Sullivan Farm, located along Route 202 in the Park Lane district of New Milford.

More than 20 farmers and artisan food producers using local produce were on hand for the harvest expo.

In addition, festival activities featured hayrides, pumpkin picking, a hay maze, children's games, cider-making demonstrations, culinary workshops by local chefs, sugar house tours, children's crafts, farm animals, tractors and a pumpkin cannon.
