WSU Organic Farm hosts annual Fall Harvest Festival

PULLMAN – Pullman-WSU Organic Agriculture Club hosts its fifth Fall Harvest Festival at WSU Eggert Family Organic Farm.

“It’s a fundraiser for the farm, it’s our biggest one-day sale,” said Brad Jaeckel, WSU Eggert Family Organic Farm Manager and Instructor. He also said all the sales will support the operation of the farm and the Organic Agriculture Club.

Students in WSU’s organic agriculture major organized this festival. Jaeckel said every year, he has students who organize the event as part of his fall class.

“We, as students, we want to be here. We choose these majors that we have, and we want to work on the farm and communicate with people, and educate them about farming and organic farming,” Dianna Sanchez, student of WSU, said.

“It’s a great experience for them to learn event organization, and how that works on a big scale,” Jaeckel said.

People can pick up their own pumpkin by prices, pounds, shapes and colors at the festival.

“They are really excited about picking out their pumpkins. The kids get really excited about which pumpkins they are going to carve or paint,” Sanchez said.

Sanchez said they donated the pumpkins to a bakery on campus, and then the bakery made and donated the pumpkins pie for them. She also said they have a produce stand that has the rest of their fall produce.

“It’s just a really fun event. We want everybody to come out and have fun and experience fall,” Sanchez said.
