The preparations at the site of the CH Moore Homestead takes quite a bit of time as well. Buss says getting where the different food vendors will be at marked and also the flea market area marked traditionally is a job that takes a lot of time.

Buss says one of the biggest parts of the event that he is proud of is the fact that of all the vendors around the grounds, they are all not-for-profit groups. He says it a great opportunity for those groups to raise money, and he feels having it that way helps the community a great amount.

The Apple and Pork Festival takes place the last weekend of September, 24th and 25th. Buss says they are still seeking the help of volunteers. He says this is a good opportunity for high school kids needing volunteer or community hours to get some of those knocked off. He asks anyone interested to give a call to the CH Moore Homestead at 935-6066.
