We are excited to celebrate our Amish heritage with our first event of the year. Join us for the fascinating process behind spinning wool fibers into thread on a spinning wheel from 1864. Learn about pioneer clothing and engage in the following spinning activities and techniques: sheep shearing, wool washing and dying with organic dyes, loom weaving, spinning wheel demonstrations and quilt piecing. Don't forget to bring the kiddos, we have a petting zoo just for them!
Did you know that steam threshing was a common summertime activity on almost every farm in the late 19th and early 20th centuries? Come see how the threshing machines separate the wheat grain from the chaff and straw as they are powered by large steam engines. It's a great way to go back in time and see how machines have evolved over the years!
Stay tuned for event details.
