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:
– 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
