PLAN YOUR EXPERIENCE FAMILY FUN
Family Harvest Festival
September 26, 2009
See tractors and other farm equipment spanning eighty years. Try corn husking or win a prize at the pie-eating contest. Learn how simple machines help farmers with pumping water, pressing cider, and preparing food. Find your way through a hay bale maze, harvest wild herbs, and see vegetables preserved in the traditional way. Enjoy a wagon ride through the fields, build scarecrows, go on a pumpkin treasure hunt, and make fall crafts. Listen to folk music performed by Sweet Loretta's Snake Oil Jug Band or watch a puppet show by Martha Dana. The c. 1690 manor house is open.
