Down on the Farm

June 26 10:00 am - 5:00 pm

New Brunswick’s early farmers worked hard to be self-sufficient while raising animals, clearing land, building homes, growing food, maintaining crops and gardens, making tools and clothes, and more. Learn all about life on a 19th century farm, see where you can lend a hand to our busy farmers and pick up some new skills along the way.

Here are some of the activities planned this weekend:
 
Saturday, June 25:
– Scarecrow decorating throughout the Village: Who will make the best scarecrow?
– Wool frolic at the Heustis House: It’s dirty business, but someone has to do it!
– See how ticks (what modern folk call mattresses) are made at the Killeen Cabin
– Cattail basket making workshop (registration require on Eventbrite: https://bit.ly/3boGTOA)
– Painting workshop for kids at the Theatre at 3 pm
 
Sunday, June 26:
– Rogationtide Service near the Joslin Farm at 2 pm
– Visit the Perley House to learn about harvesting early greens
– Tour the Morehouse’s vegetable gardens
