Freshly pressed cider, live music, live raptors from Ravensbeard Wildlife Center and hayrides all marked a sold out Longyear Farm Day, October 9. The Woodstock Land Conservancy organized the event at the 70-year old family farm in the middle of Woodstock owned and managed by Matt, Heather, Kathy Longyear, Mike, and Meghann Reimondo. This community “funraiser” featured program and exhibitors reflecting farm life and environmental awareness for all ages.
