Sawmilling and Tree Planting    

Saturday, March 21    10:00am–4:00pm

Barn beams, siding, and floorboards for horse stalls will be the order of the day when logger-sawyer Scott Stevens makes his annual stop at Howell Farm—a visit reminiscent of days when contractors with portable engines and mills came through Pleasant Valley to help farmers cut lumber from trees growing in their woodlots. 

During the day there will be opportunities for visitors to help roll logs to the mill with logging tools, cut firewood for the kitchen stove, make pegs for use in barn framing, and plant replacement trees in the farm's woodlot. Visitors can also learn about plans to restore and use the farm's steam-powered sawmill.
