Farm life

Visitors to the Farm will have the opportunity to sample the everyday life of the farm family living during this era. Guests on this working farm will be able to observe activities that would have been commonplace on traditional farms. Plowing with mules, making lye soap, grinding grits, blacksmiths, curing meat, preserving vegetables, milking cows, and harvesting crops are only a few of the demonstrations to see at the Farm.

The Farm was established with the mission to preserve and protect the materials and objects relating to the history and culture of the family in the period of 1900-1955 and to teach the history through interpretative displays in a working traditional farm setting.



Many people gathered on a chilly, but still sunny day to have a good time.

Why was Halloween made up?
Hansen: The practices of Halloween mostly come from Celtic paganism in the British Isles, and their feast of Samhain, the new year. They believed it was the time when ghosts and spirits came out to haunt, and the Celts would appease the spirits by giving them treats.
Why do we have pumpkins for Halloween?
Carving pumpkins into jack-o’-lanterns is a popular Halloween tradition that originated hundreds of years ago in Ireland. Back then, however, jack-o’-lanterns were made out of turnips or potatoes; it wasn’t until Irish immigrants arrived in America and discovered the pumpkin that a new Halloween ritual was born.
What health benefits does pumpkin have?
Eating pumpkin is good for the heart. The fiber, potassium, and vitamin C content in pumpkin all support heart health. Studies suggest that consuming enough potassium may be almost as important as decreasing sodium intake for the treatment of hypertension, or high blood pressure.
