Pumpkin hayride at Community Farm this Saturday

On Saturday, Oct. 8, Nick Robertson, owner of North Meadow Farm, and the Jamestown Community Farm are sponsoring a pumpkin hayride at the Jamestown Community Farm at the corner of old Eldred Avenue and East Shore Road.

The event will run from 1 to 3 p.m. and feature Nick’s team of horses pulling a wagon loaded with children through the fields to the pumpkin patch, where they can select a jack-o-lantern-sized pumpkin of their choice.

There will not be a charge for this event. Donations will be accepted, and all donations will be shared equally by the Jamestown Community Farm and the Conanicut Island Grange.

The rain date is Sunday.
