Experience the life of a 19th century farmer in this fully interactive program. Grind grain in a quern, try your hand at threshing and winnowing, plant seeds to take home, and investigate and examine real food preparation artifacts from the 1800s. End the day with a taste of fresh bread and butter from our very own Black Creek bake oven.
