Families searching for outdoor, festive fun need look no further than Hope Farms, Recipe for Success Foundation’s urban-farm project in Sunnyside.


On Saturday, Oct. 24 and Saturday, Oct. 31, the beautiful property will boast fab fall backdrops — vignettes of pumpkins, hay bales and even an antique tractor — in front of which families can snap their own pics. Time slots are available between 9:15am and 12:45pm on both days. After the shoot, folks can check out the selection of farm-fresh produce — or pick up orders they’ve placed online.
