Chippewa Falls, WI – There’s nothing better than kicking off fall by picking your own apples, strolling through a corn maze and sipping on a glass of wine. Families and community members are invited to Autumn Harvest Winery and Orchard’s annual Fall Festival this Saturday and Sunday, where a portion of this year’s sales will benefit a local charity.
“We are always grateful to live and own a business in such a supportive community. This is an opportunity for us to give back and pay it forward,” said co-owner Jean McIlquham.
Proceeds from apple and tasting room sales on both Saturday and Sunday will benefit the Alzheimer’s Association. Visitors to the orchard are encouraged to enjoy family events, such as face painting and a petting zoo, and free live music events all weekend, including a free concert by Dead Horses, a popular folk band which performed at the Blue Ox Music festival.
“The fall season is something we look forward to all year. We have something for the whole family, so we are excited for this event!” said co-owner Chad McIlquham.
