Harvest Day

Get outside and kick off autumn at Harvest Day at Ford House.

There will be lots of free fun for everyone, including old-school lawn games, a petting zoo, horse and pony rides, face painting, a giant leaf pile, hands-on activities, and plenty of photo opps. The outdoors is yours to explore, plus you can take a peek inside the historic house and stroll through the first floor.

What would a fall outing be without a tasty treat of cider and donuts? Blake’s Cider Mill will set up shop here, selling their seasonal best right here at Ford House. Enjoy it on site or take it home!

We will also host a mini fall market, with local farmers offering their harvest wares: pumpkins, apples, fall bouquets and more. Vendors include Detroit Abloom, Green Toe Gardens and more. For the grownups, Blake’s will have samples of their hard cider, beer and wine, which will also be available for purchase. 

Plus Seeburger’s Cheeseburgers will be on hand offering burgers, hot dogs, fries and brats for the family. Bring a picnic blanket and relax on the estate lawn!
