Featured will be a variety of seasonal jams and preserves for sampling and sale including plum, mulberry, blueberry, and blackberry, as well as dandelion, basil and mint jellies. All are produced by farmstead volunteers using ingredients grown onsite or locally. And just in time for fall planting a variety of native plants will also be available for purchase. Fall planting allows the plants to get established prior to freezing temperatures without the threat of summer heat, drought and other issues. Visitors will also be entertained by live music provided by members of Friday Musicale. The Farmstead is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and is owned and maintained by Bloomington Restorations, Inc.
