Hello Apple Moms! It’s finally feeling like Fall!  Fall is such a great time in the Hudson Valley, specifically in Westchester, with all our great historic sights many of them have links to Halloween folklore and legend.  This week marks the start of one of our favorite events, the Great Jack O’Lantern Blaze.  More information can be found here.  October is also Fire Safety Month.  Lots of fire houses around the valley will host open houses and there will be great information in the community about fire safety and prevention.  More on this next week, for Fire Safety week.  In the meantime, there is lots of great fall events.  Hope to see you there!

And remember, our list of Farmer’s Markets can be found here. Check out our Apple Picking list too!
