About This Activity

Description

This activity is closed to further registration.

Activity stations reveal the life and work of an 1890s farm family and teach students about the products farmers provide. Depending on the season, your group may experience what it?s like to raise food in the kitchen garden, harvest crops, stack bales of straw and hay, use tools, or watch blacksmiths, beekeepers and draft horses at work. To register by phone instead, call (630) 876-5900.
