Crafts and Trades of Olden Days

Description

At Crafts and Trades of Olden Days, visitors can enjoy the rural surroundings and views of the mountains while learning about old fashioned jobs and the traditional arts and crafts that went into making what was needed for life down on the farm. Sweaters, candles, even door hinges were made by hand, using skills not widely practiced today.

The event allows visitors of all ages to enjoy games and demonstrations including blacksmithing, candle-dipping, and working with a drop spindle. Other activities include soap making, smoking meats, and cider making. Several “make and take” activities are offered as well.

During the event, visitors can explore the Agricultural Heritage Center and get a glimpse into the history of agriculture in this area.

Please note that no pets are allowed on the farm.
