Harvest Day at the Farm

Living History
Before the days of oil and electricity, most small farm houses were heated by burning wood. Cutting wood was as important as harvesting any other crop that was grown on the farm. Join us to try your hand at sawing wood and see how it was sawn into blocks using a crosscut saw.

Cooking Demonstration at the Farm

Living History, Tour
See a cooking demonstration on the wood-burning stove. When a hog was butchered in the early part of the year, every effort was made to make as much use of the meat as possible. The head of the pig was often cooked and pressed into a “cheese loaf” or souse meat to be used for breakfast or sandwich meat. Many families would also process the liver into “liver pudding.” Join us to see how both of these dishes would have been prepared. A free, hour long, guided tour of the Farm will be available to the public at 3:00 PM following the demonstration.
