Char-Lene Farm, located between Taylorsville and Mount Airy, will host its annual Farm Fest from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 27.
"Char-Lene Farm will donate 10 percent of its proceeds that day to For 3 Sisters, a breast cancer organization that we were honored to have had here last year. In lieu of vendor fees, we have asked all our vendors to donate a $10 entry fee to For 3 Sisters," said Angie Savage, of Char-Lene Farm.
"For 3 Sisters was started in 2011 by retired Montgomery County, Maryland, career firefighter Marshall Moneymaker and his wife, Shannon Moneymaker, after Marshall lost three older sisters to breast cancer," according to the nonprofit's website. "For 3 Sisters' mission is to raise awareness and improve the quality of life for men and women affected by breast cancer."
At the fest, a variety of vendors will be in attendance and the farm will offer two corn mazes, a pumpkin patch, hayrides, kids activities, games, a barrel train and a petting zoo — fun for the entire family.
Admission for the small corn maze, which is ¾ of an acre, is $2 per child; a child younger than 2 will be admitted free with a paying child and the parent is free as well. The eight-acre maze, with two miles of trails, is $8 per person during the day. If a large maze admission is purchased, a hayride is included.
