Family Days at the Heritage Farm: Homesteading

Saturday, October 20, 2018

Homesteading Life on the farm in the fall meant preparing for winter. Learn about harvest feasts, the origin and use of scarecrows, and the evolution of the tradition that we now know as Halloween. Activities include open hearth cooking, building a scarecrow for our garden, and participating in household chores including making a mattress.
