Local farm gears up for fall activities

MINERVA - It's about that time and It's About Thyme Farm in Olmstedville is ready for the fall season with produce and flowers for sale, "pick your own pumpkin" opportunities and much more.

The family owned and operated farm is a Certified Garden Center and has been providing local communities with much more than a place to find a pretty flower or two. Diane Colletti and family live on and run the 150-acre farm.

It's About Thyme is open May through October and offers school programs as well as private parties, while selling perennials, herbs, fresh produce and more.

Johnsburg, Newcomb and Long Lake Central Schools are often found enjoying what It's About Thyme has to offer. Youth from across the region enjoy picking their own pumpkins as well as taking strolls through a scarecrow walk, which was created last year.

"Everyone comes and says how happy they are to have this in our area," said Colletti.

The farm boasts the largest pumpkin patch in the eastern Adirondacks and has picking available daily from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. now through Oct. 30.

Saturday and Sunday feature free cider and doughnuts to those who come to visit the farm.

"Pumpkin picking is a wonderful way to spend a fall day while enjoying the Adirondack Fall Foliage," said Colletti.

The farm is located at 32 Smith Road and can be contacted at 251-5297 or itsaboutthymefarm.com.
