Plowing Up the PastSaturday, March 07, 2020 10:00am - 03:00pm

See how fields were plowed for the spring plantings. See different types of field plows and antique tractors. These antique tractors are a display of farming equipment and a way of life circa 1930’s and 1940’s, a reflection of rural American history. Observe, as the participants work the land plowing and disking. Volunteers in period clothing will be at the farmstead demonstrating period crafts and interpreting the farms history.
