SHUTTLE! Come to Harvest Fair from Seattle or Bainbridge. You can walk on the ferry or park at Bethany Lutheran Church, and our very own Skip will hand deliver you to Johnson Farm. Your chariot awaits when you want to return home. Skip will be ready to pick up people at the Bainbridge Ferry starting with the Seattle 10:40 am through the Bainbridge 5:30 pm.

This educational and fun event brings our community together to celebrate, appreciate and nurture local farming.  Not just for the kids, Harvest Fair encourages everyone to take a day and join us on the farm.

Food vendors and other organizations interested in being part of this year’s celebration of local farming, please contact Wendy Tyner at wendy.tyner@friendsofthefarms.org.
