Mother's Day Festival at Harbes

What does Mom really want for Mother’s Day? A place that makes everyone in the family happy? A place where, for once, she can sit and relax without worrying about the kids – maybe even with a glass of wine?

That’s the magic of Harbes Family Farm & Vineyard in Mattituck. Harbes combines The Barnyard Adventure – 8 acres of fun for kids of all ages – with a restored 100-year old Wine Barn that offers wine-tasting and wines by the glass. And since Harbes started as a farmstand, the food is as good as the award-winning drink, with concession offerings that include roasted sweet corn, delicious tomato/mozzarella paninis, and Harbes’ signature apple cider donuts.

For their annual Mother’s Day Festival, May 12 and 13, Moms get free admission to the Barnyard Adventure, with its singing hayride tours, pig races, and children’s activities with Farmer Fred throughout the day.  There’s also Jumbo Jumpers bounce pillows, a Sports Zone with baseball, football and basketball tossing games, a trike track, musical chicken show, and a Lil Farmers PlayLand filled with lots of activities for preschoolers.

Mother’s Day Festival hours are 10 AM to 6 PM each day (the farmstand opens at 9 AM daily.) Some activities may be weather dependent (for example, no hayrides in muddy conditions.) For more on admission and other details, go to
