The weekend will feature traditional cooking demonstrations in the farmhouse, wagon rides, farm tours, Introduction to Milking and Milking the Herd programs and hands-on food preparation and preservation activities.
You’ll be welcomed to Frederick Billings’ farmhouse, where farm manager George Aitken and his family lived and worked from 1890 to 1910. Visit with costumed interpreters as they demonstrate preparing traditional Thanksgiving fare in the kitchen. Relax in the Victorian parlor and learn how our American Thanksgiving traditions have evolved. Enjoy a cup of spiced cider before boarding the wagon for a ride around the farm.
In the education room, hands-on activities for all ages include “making the perfect piecrust” and peeling apples for drying.
Special Treat! Author Kristina Rodanas will read her new book, Huck's Way Home at 2PM Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. The book is available for purchase in the Museum Shop.
