It’s that time of year again, and with it comes our farm’s annual Harvest Festival! Enjoy an activity-filled afternoon at Golden Earthworm Organic Farm in beautiful Jamesport, Long Island: Tour the farm, listen to music, eat well, take a hay ride… you name it! There’s plenty there for adults and kids alike.

Due to popular demand, we are partnering with Astoria CSA and renting a bus—the farm is about 2 hours away. Of course, CSA members can drive to the farm on their own (directions here), but if you want to save gas and not think about driving, SIGN UP TO RIDE THE BUS. We’re asking for a $5 contribution per person to help with the bus rental.

MORE BUS RIDE INFO

You must SIGN UP TO RIDE THE BUS. First-come, first-serve. Please note: The way the sign-up page is designed, it looks like you are about to pay for tickets online with a credit card. Ignore this! Simply select the number of people in your party (guests are welcome) under “Sunnyside CSA members” and choose “Show Other Payment Options” (written in microscopic text under the “Order Now” button) and choose “Pay At The Door.” Then, fill out the info and place the “order.” There is no $1.12 processing fee. Just bring $5 per person in cash to the bus, and we’ll collect the money then. Simple! Don’t forget to read all the bus details below!
