Fall Plowing & Manure Spreading    

Saturday, September 18 | 10:00–4:00 p.m.

It’s time to plant winter wheat, which means it’s time to help fill the farm's "New Idea" spreader with old bedding, corn cobs, and manure...then follow the farmer and horses out to the field and watch as they spread it over the ground.

Once the soil is ready, you can help with the next step and turn over the earth with a mouldbord plow pulled by another team of horses. Farmers will be there to drive the team and teach you how to turn a perfect furrow. 

**Please note that all 2021 Saturday programs will be modified to encourage social distancing and reflect current State guidelines for public events. Visitors are required to carry masks at all times, and wear them when social distancing isn't possible. Thank you for your understanding, and we hope to see you soon!
