September is a busy event month for us at the Coop. We love supporting local events and try to do as many as we can handle. We thought we’d share some of the public events happening in our community and hope to see some of our wonderful members there!


Rodale InstitueRodale 7th Annual Organic Apple Festival 

Kutztown, PA. September 19, 2015 10:00am – 4:00pm

Fall is the season for picking apples! Rodale Institute is offering the option for families to pick their own apples in their organic orchard. The farm boasts many varieties, including some that are not commercially available! They expect to have organic Liberty and Empire apples in addition to a few unnamed varieties. All varieties are perfect for eating fresh, baking, and preserving. Rodale will provide the baskets (free to use in the orchard or purchase to keep), apple pickers, and carts. Apples are first come, first serve. There will also be plenty of delicious organic treats, live music, and activities for children. Parking and Festival are right on the farm. LFFC will be attending this event, selling organic produce and promoting the new Bethlehem CSA sites!
