OUTSIDE THE CITY
September 24, 2011
See tractors and other farm equipment spanning the last eighty years. Try your hand at corn husking and win prizes 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 being preserved in the traditional way. Enjoy a wagon ride, build scarecrows, go on a pumpkin treasure hunt, and make fall crafts. Listen to folk music or watch a puppet show by Martha Dana. The c. 1690 manor house is open. Cider, donuts, and hot lunch are available for purchase.
