Browning Orchard Festival set for Sept. 30

SocialMedia2018-BrowningOrchardgraphic.pngThe annual Browning Orchard Festival will be held Sunday, Sept. 30, from noon to 4 p.m. at the orchard, located at 10955 Wallingford Road in Fleming County. 

The event will feature family-friendly activities, music from the Kentucky Center for Traditional Music, hayrides, pony rides, a kids’ hay-maze, pig roast and concessions. 

MSU’s Department of Agricultural Sciences will have items from the MSU Farm and Kentucky Proud products for sale at the festival, including apples, mums, cider, pumpkins and much more. Apple sales begin at noon. 

Browning Orchard was originally purchased in 1899 by E.P. Browning, who grew peaches there. His son, Francis Browning, converted the property into a commercial apple orchard in the 1920s. The Browning family donated the property to MSU in 2008. It offers students in MSU’s agricultural sciences programs the opportunity for hands-on learning in commercial fruit production, horticulture and agribusiness. 

Additional event information is available from the Office of Alumni Relations and Development at 606-783-2033 or, or visit
