2nd Saturday on the Farm

Date/Time

Sep 8, 2018 to Dec 8, 2018
11:00 AM until 03:00 PM

This event occurs monthly, on the second Saturday of September, October, November and December.

Description

A family event that focuses on a particular area of agriculture. Visitors can participate in the regular activities of the Ag History Project plus others related to the day’s special focus. 

Unique interactive educational activities will help you have fun learning about past agricultural practices. What we like to call our “usual” activities include:

  • Wooden cow milking: we have life-size wooden cows with rubber teats that help you learn how to milk a cow.
  • Kid-driven tractor: we retrofitted a John Deere tractor so that anyone can learn to drive it. You sit in the seat and control the steering wheel while a trained volunteer stands on a platform to your right to controls the speed. We even have space for a parent or friend to stand to your left and enjoy the ride.
  • Tractor Simulator: we have a stationary tractor that you can drive down a crop row. The computer screen in front of you displays how well you are handling the tractor.
  • Puppet Theater: each month we have a new show playing.
