Wheat Planting    

Saturday, October 2 | 10:00–4:00 p.m.

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 on the threshing floor, in the woodshed—where you can lend a hand cutting firewood for the kitchen stove—and in the farmhouse to help churn butter for bread made with Howell Farm wheat. As a 'thank you' for your help, you’ll go home with a share of the harvest: a bag of freshly-ground flour, complete with a recipe to make whole wheat bread at home.

**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!
