Historic Deerfield, Amazing Agriculture
August 14 @ 12:00 pm - 4:30 pm
An event every day that begins at 12:00 pm, repeating until August 24, 2019
Join us at the History Workshop and “dig in” to some fascinating activities as you explore the rich heritage of agriculture in Deerfield. The deep, fertile soil of the Connecticut River Valley has nourished crops for thousands of years making it possible for Indigenous people, European settlers and contemporary farmers to thrive on the land. Work in our family garden where we grow broom corn for making brooms and flax for spinning. Learn about and use real farm tools of the past, take a peat pot of seeds home with you, and on special days, meet some gentle farm animals.
Unless otherwise noted, all exhibitions are included with general admission to the museum.
