Stockbridge Students Volunteer at North Amherst Farm Fest

Thanks to the many Stockbridge School of Agriculture students who showed up to volunteer at the annual North Amherst Harvest Festival at Simple Gifts Farm.

It was a beautiful day and hundreds of local community members joined us to enjoy the music and sunshine.

Apples were donated by the UMass Cold Spring Orchard in Belchertown.

Stockbridge students cut and pressed the apples and shared the fresh apple juice with kids and adults.

The kids enjoyed helping to work the apple press.

The apple press was loaned to us by the Common School in Amherst.

Several of the big kids helped out too!

Thanks so much to the Amherst Common School, the UMass Cold Spring Orchard, and the Stockbridge School of Agriculture for contributing to the success of the 2012 North Amherst Harvest Festival.
