Saturday, October 14th was a cold and rainy day, but that didn’t stop the Harvest Fest from rockin’! The goal of Harvest Fest is to connect students and families to resources and programs surrounding the environment. My friends and I stopped down at the Student Organic Farm to see some of our fellow RISE friends work the Land Grant Goods stand, and we were impressed! They produced and sold the yummiest raspberry jam I’ve ever tasted, along with several types of tea and raw honey! Not to mention, they had bundles of smooth smelling lavender and uniquely designed t-shirts. Check out Land Grant Good’s products when you have chance—you will love it!
I also happened to get the chance to taste some delicious, fresh, homemade apple cider that was produced right in front of my eyes. Paired with a bagel smothered in apple
cinnamon butter, my tastebuds were in perfect harmony.
Another great part of the Harvest Fest was that there was live music! Not only could I browse around eco-friendly, MSU student-organization produced goods, but I was able to sit down and relax to a local guitarist. He was amazing! To top the entire trip off, while sitting back and enjoying our bagels and cider to the music, my friends and I met this adorable farm cat, Trout! Rain or shine, the Harvest Fest was a success. Make sure you check it out next year!
