Farm Stand & Open House at Burke's Fall Foliage Festival
Fall Fest 2022 was a tremendous success for East Burke School: our students cranked out over 60 gallons of fresh apple cider and, with the help of dozens of volunteers and seven local businesses, sold every last drop!  If you took part in the effort this year, thank you so much for supporting your village high school.  We can't wait to beat this year's record on the third Saturday of September 2023!
