Wheat Planting

Saturday, September 30 | 10:00–4:00

Children's Craft:  Wheat Seed Porcupine (11:00–3:00)

Wheat planting is a delicate operation, and the soil has to be just right to plant on schedule...but the work of threshing, grinding, and milling wheat for flour or animal feed goes on rain or shine.

Join farmers in the barn to thresh wheat, by the woodshed—where you can lend a hand cutting firewood for the kitchen stove—and outside the farmhouse to help churn butter for whole wheat bread made with Howell Farm wheat. As a 'thank you' for your help, you’ll receive a sample of homemade bread, and a recipe to make your own at home!

Howell Farm is owned by the County of Mercer and operated by the Mercer County Park Commission
