Hayrides will be up and running, and the Fishkill Farms Grill will be cooking up some great barbecue and tomato-themed dishes.

Additionally, a kids' workshop will be taking place, and lawn games will be out on the hillside.

Blackberries, melons and Earligold Apples will also be ready for picking.

The vegetable fields are exploding with tomatoes of all shapes and sizes, eggplants, leafy greens, peppers (both sweet and hot), and so much more, according to a release from Fishkill Farms.
