Children Shucking Corn During Billings Farm & Museum's Harvest Weekend

The weekend features a husking bee and barn dance, plus a variety of 19th century harvest activities and programs for the entire family.

A traditional husking bee will begin at noon each day, followed by a barn dance from 1:00 to 4:00 p.m. Lend a hand pressing cider, preserving apples, threshing grain, and making ice cream. Harvesting the heirloom vegetable garden will be nearing completion and children can help dig potatoes and other root crops and learn how crops are “put up” for the winter.

Other activities include: shelling beans, apples-on-a-string, and 19th century games. Hot-spiced cider and homemade doughnuts will be on hand for all!  Admission includes all programs and activities.
