For nine years, Foxhollow Farm’s Fall Festival has been the premier old-fashioned, kid-friendly event in Oldham County. Come out to the one-day event this October for pumpkins, hayrides, games and crafts, farm-fresh food, live music, animals and many more activities!
Our 2016 Fall Festival welcomed more than 10,000 of our friends and neighbors to the farm. With the support of our community, we were able to donate more than $30,000 to Maryhurst. In the last eight years, Foxhollow Farm has donated more than $100,000 in Fall Festival proceeds to Maryhurst. Learn more about the 9th annual Fall Festival here.
A Little History
Our mother and daughter proprietors, Janey and Maggie, started this festival nine years ago with a few friends and a lot of hope. That first year, 100 people came to drink hot cider and listen to a boys choir sing on a warm autumn afternoon.
Since its humble beginnings, the Fall Festival has benefitted numerous local community groups and nonprofits, most notably Maryhurst, a nonprofit agency for abused and neglected children, to whom we have donated more than $100,000 during the course of our partnership. Donations from the Fall Festival have fully funded an educational raised bed garden on the Maryhurst campus and supported clinical interventions that help the abused and neglected youth of Maryhurst heal and regain a sense of hope and self worth.
With growing crowds topping 10,000 people in 2016, we are looking ahead to the Fall Festival’s 10-year anniversary in 2017 and welcoming Dare to Care Food Bank as our primary beneficiary. Dare to Care Food Bank is a local nonprofit agency with a mission to lead the community in feeding the hungry and conquering the cycle of need.
Proceeds from the 10th annual Fall Festival will benefit Dare to Care Food Bank and Foxhollow Farm’s Outreach Program, which includes continuing our series of Maryhurst field trips to the farm. Dare to Care Food Bank will use the funds from the Fall Festival to increase their clients’ access to fresh fruits and vegetables, which can be difficult for struggling families to acquire. Dare to Care Food Bank plans to distribute at least 6.6 million pounds of fresh produce in the next year, through their network of more than 300 local social service agencies, such as food pantries, shelters and emergency kitchens. We are happy to partner with Dare to Care Food Bank to benefit the community, from farm to food bank to family.
