LONG SAULT, Ontario – This year’s Fall Festival was the biggest one yet, according to Jaime MacRae of Cornerstone Organics, which hosts the event at their farm house.
Taking place on Saturday, Oct. 5, 2019, the event had 15 vendors, along with crafts for kids, cider and three live music acts.
MacRae explained how her family had owned the farm for six years and that she has a passion for organic food and homemade artifacts.
“When our son was born, we wanted more homemade and organic products free from chemicals and it became part of our lifestyle,” MacRae said. “There is something so much more special about handmade.”
MacRae went on to explain that Cornerstone Organics decided to start their Fall Festival so that there was a venue for homemade and organic products locally.
“We used to have to go out of town to find these wholesome vendors,” she said.
As a part of the festival, Cornerstone Organics was also raffling off a gift basket worth $700 for Rachel’s Kids House of Hope.
