HELLAM TWP.-- The Horn Farm Center farm stand opens May 19.

The farm stand will offer fresh, chemical-free produce from the Horn Farm Center's four incubator farmers who lease farmland on the property.

Find a selection of plants for your home garden as well as early spring produce during the opening weeks. Throughout the season, a wide variety of produce will be available including heirloom varieties of tomatoes, peppers, eggplant, sweet corn, strawberries, and more.

The farm stand also serves as a pickup location for the two farms offering CSA memberships. CSA shares are still available through Kilgore Family Farm (717-968-5285) and Sterling Farm (717-332-8710). Contact each farm for details.

The Horn Farm Center farm stand will be open 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturdays and 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Wednesdays.

The Horn Farm will offer a series of family-friendly educational sessions that introduce the complex world of a working farm. Led by farm manager Jon Darby and volunteers, families can race earthworms, tour the farm, play games or even taste a mealworm!

Sessions are scheduled from 10 a.m. to noon on the following dates:

--- May 19, "Chomp, Sniff & Stomp"

--- June 16, "Bug Out at the Horn Farm"

--- July 21, "Don't Call Me Chicken."

For families or groups of four, the charge is $15 per program and $3 for each additional individual. A family or group who registers for all three programs can get a reduced rate ticket for $35. No refunds.
